Beijing: Chinese activists are urging the public to visit dissident Liu Xiaobo's wife to highlight that she has been under house arrest since her husband won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2010.

Activist Hu Jia said today that Chinese citizens and foreign politicians should visit Liu Xia at her guarded Beijing apartment to help her regain freedom. A Hong Kong online newspaper, Mingbao, published a detailed guide for visiting the home.

The Associated Press last month visited the apartment when guards apparently were on break, conducting Liu's first interview in two years. Hu and other activists brushed past a guard to visit the home last week.

Hu is taking a cue from an earlier mobilisation to visit blind activist Chen Guangcheng in Shandong before he escaped house arrest last spring.
