Ai Weiwei: 'I feel I have been robbed'


Chinese artist Ai Weiwei has said he feels like he has been 'robbed' after being handed a $2.4m tax bill.

He has handed over a $1.3m (£820,000) bond to the government in order to begin an appeal against the disputed money.

Speaking outside his studio as he prepared to leave for a meeting with officials over the disputed money, he expressed frustration at what he said were unfair claims by the state.
