Taiwan: Minister encounters protest at WHA

Some Taiwanese students protested against the Taiwanese Health Minister Yeh Ching-chuan (葉金川) who is attending the World Health Assembly (WHA) in Geneva. The students claimed he was selling out Taiwan by allowing the use of the designation Chinese Taipei at the WHA. The View from Taiwan looks at how the media drag former President Chen Shui-bian's family into the issue. The Far-Eastern Sweet Potato looks at how the government tries to play down the criticisms of the protesters.
