Chinese author and political dissident Liao Yiwu, who was due to attend an event in Berlin connected with the Frankfurt Book Fair, has been banned from traveling to Germany just weeks after the fair's organizers revoked invitations for two other Chinese writers.
Doubts have arisen as to whether China is the right country to be the guest of honor at this year's Frankfurt Book Fair.
