A professor who criticised China’s handling of the coronavirus crisis has been detained by authorities. Xu Zhangrun, who has been under house arrest, was taken away from his Beijing home on Monday, friends said.

The law professor has previously spoken out against the Mao-like cult of personality which has returned under China’s current leader, Xi Jinping.

Police have not commented publicly on the arrest, and it is unclear what charges Mr Xu faces.
