China activist Chen Guangcheng 'under house arrest'

One of China's most high-profile human rights activists says he is being held under house arrest.

"I've come out of a small jail and entered a bigger one," Chen Guangcheng says in the secretly shot video, released by a US-based campaign group.

These are the first comments from Mr Chen since his release from prison last September. He accused the authorities of carrying out forced abortions.
