Chinese Nobel Peace laureate Liu Xiaobo died on Thursday , aged 61, after a battle with liver cancer, having not been allowed to leave the country for treatment.
Liu, 61, was jailed for 11 years in 2009 for state subversion after he helped write a petition known as "Charter 08" calling for sweeping political reforms.
He was recently moved from jail to a hospital in the northeastern city of Shenyang to be treated.
