A US congressional committee on human rights heard an impassioned plea about human rights abuses in China from a Canadian beauty pageant contestant. Actress Anastasia Lin, who plays an imprisoned practitioner of the outlawed Falun Gong sect in an upcoming Canadian movie "The Bleeding Edge" is Canada's nominee for the Miss World pageant.
