suraj.sun writes with word (snipped from CNN) that censoring the news of Liu Xiaobo’s Nobel prize wasn’t enough for the government of China; now, Liu’s wife “has been detained in her apartment in Beijing, China, and is not allowed to see people or use her telephone, a human rights group citing her attorney said Sunday. The woman, Liu Xia, has not been charged with a crime, said Freedom Now, a US-based group. ‘Liu Xia is under enormous pressure,’ said Dr. Yang Jianli, a member of Liu Xiaobo’s defense team and a human rights specialist with Freedom Now. ‘We hope that world leaders will immediately condemn this shameful act by the Chinese government and urge Liu Xia’s immediate and unconditional release.’”
