    Nobel laureate Liu Xiaobo, who was China’s most prominent human rights and democracy advocate, has died aged 61.
    The activist had been serving an 11-year prison term for “subversion” and was recently moved to a hospital due to a terminal liver cancer.
    A university professor turned tireless rights campaigner, Mr Liu was branded a criminal by authorities.
    The Nobel Committee said the Chinese government bore a “heavy responsibility” for his death.
    The campaigner was repeatedly jailed throughout his life. When not in prison, he was subject to severe restrictions while his wife, Liu Xia, was placed under house arrest.
