Liu Xiaobo: 1955 - 2017 
Chinese Nobel Peace laureate Liu Xiaobo has died, the government of the northeastern Chinese city of Shenyang, where he was being treated for late-stage liver cancer, said on Thursday.

The Shenyang legal bureau said in a brief statement on its website that Liu had suffered multiple organ failure and efforts to save him had failed.

Liu, 61, was jailed for 11 years in 2009 for "inciting subversion of state power" after he helped write a petition known as "Charter 08" calling for sweeping political reforms.

A supporter of Liu Xiaobo, one of China's most prominent dissidents, is pushed into a police car after scuffling with officers outside the courthouse where Liu is on trial in Beijing December 23, 2009. Liu went on trial on subversion charges on Wednesday, drawing an outcry at home and abroad over the country's sweeping laws against political opponents. Chinese prosecutors accuse Liu of "inciting subversion of state power" by publishing essays on the Internet critical of the ruling Communist Party and helping to organise the "Charter 08" petition, demanding a democratic remake of the one-party state.

Liu Xia, wife of veteran Chinese pro-democracy activist Liu Xiaobo, wipes her eyes as she speaks during an interview in Beijing June 24, 2009. Liu Xiaobo, one of China's best known dissidents, has been formally arrested on suspicion of inciting subversion, following his detention late last year for promoting a petition calling for an end to one-party rule. The move brings one of the most prominent critics of the ruling Communist Party a step closer to trial, and it will be a blow to supporters and human rights groups who had hoped he would be released after China passed the politically sensitive 20th anniversary of the 1989 pro-democracy Tiananmen protests.
