In his first in-depth TV interview since his dramatic escape, Chinese human rights activist Chen Guangcheng tells CNN about his departure from China and his continuing concern for family and friends he left behind.
Chen's arrival in the United States last week brought an end to a diplomatic firestorm between Beijing and Washington that erupted after he escaped from house arrest in the Shandong province.
"Let's use the term 'illegal detention,'" Chen said. "It's hard for me to describe what it was like during that time. But let's just say that my suffering was beyond imagination."
Watch the interview on "Anderson Cooper 360°" tonight at 8 ET.
