Liu Xiaobo died on July 13 at a hospital in Shenyang, age 61

Liu Xiaobo 刘晓波 (December 28, 1955–July 13, 2017) was a literary critic, essayist, activist, and dissident who was sentenced to 11 years in prison on charges of subversion in 2009. Liu is the third person to have been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize while detained by his government, and the second to die in detention, after the German pacifist Carl von Ossietzky, who was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1935 and died in a Nazi concentration camp in 1938.
