Chinese dissident Liu Xiao Bo has been awarded the Noble Peace Prize. Liu is currently serving an 11 year prison sentence in China and is the first Chinese national to win that prize.
Last Christmas, Liu was sentenced for "inciting subversion of the state" after he helped launch Charter 08 a 2008 manifesto calling for democratic reform of the one party state.
