China rights lawyers: A wife's desperate search for her husband

Yuan Shanshan, wife of human rights lawyer Xie Yanyi, has not seen her husband for a year.

She went to the court in Tianjin where lawyers and human rights activists were tried, hoping to find information about her husband.

She was sent back to Beijing by the police after being questioned outside of the court.

She spoke to the BBC about how it feels to be the wife of one of China's human rights lawyers.
