LINYI, SHANDONG (ANS) -- The home of the eldest brother of blind legal activist Chen Guangcheng has come under attack again.

According to a news release from the China Aid Association (CAA), individuals organized by the government drove up to the home just after two o'clock Tuesday morning Beijing time, and began throwing beer bottles and bricks.

CAA said the attackers shined the headlights of the vehicles into the home of Chen Guangfu to stage the attack, which was accompanied by explosive like sounds.

CAA said Chen Guangfu, the eldest brother of Chen Guangcheng, called emergency services to report the incident to the police only to discover that his cellphone had been disabled.

CAA said, "When he used another phone to call (emergency services), the person who answered at first tried to evade the issue and later simply refused to answer the phone."

CAA said it is calling "on people of conscience everywhere to help protect the rights of Chinese citizens to safety and protection of their property by calling Yinan's 110-(the emergency services number).

CAA said, "Please act as Chen Guangfu's proxy in reporting to the police what these 'public servants' are doing at his home in Dongshigu village, Shuangbai town. Please act quickly and do not delay."

CAA said the number is +011-86-531-8512-5110 from overseas, and +0539-110 from within China.

CAA is an international non-profit Christian human rights organization committed to promoting religious freedom and the rule of law in China.
