    By James Ma/EyePress



    Hong Kong, Hong Kong - A sign for the Causeway Bay Books hangs outside the bookstore in Hong Kong, China, 10 January 2016. The bookstore specializes in reading material critical of the Chinese Communist Party. Major bookstore shareholder Lee Bo was reported missing by his wife Sophie Choi on 1 January, just weeks after four of his associates disappeared in mysterious circumstances. The disappearance of Lee is the fifth such case related to Causeway Bay Books. A British Foreign and Commonwealth Office spokesperson said that it was aware of the case, and that there was a possibility that one of the missing -- 65-year-old Lee Bo - was a British passport holder. And Sweden's foreign ministry said its embassies in Bangkok and Beijing were investigating reports that one of its nationals had been detained in Thailand or China. (EyePress/James Ma)
