Washington: The United States has asked China to allow the wife of Liu Xiaobo, who has been awarded this year`s Noble peace prize, to move freely.
The State Department spokesman P J Crowley expressed concern over reports that the wife of Liu Xiaobo has been confined to her home and Western diplomats have not been
allowed to see her.
"We are concerned. It is something that we are watching very closely, and we believe that her rights should be respected and she should be allowed to move freely without
harassment," Crowley told reporters
