شعار Al Jazeera Al Jazeera 13/07/2017

Chinese Nobel laureate Liu Xiaobo dies at 61, government officials said on Thursday.

Liu was diagnosed with liver cancer in May while serving an 11-year sentence for inciting subversion after he helped to write a petition known as "Charter 08" calling for basic human rights and sweeping political reforms.

Earlier on Thursday, China resisted fresh international pleas to let Liu seek treatment abroad after the latest hospital updates suggested the democracy champion was close to death.
