Liu Xia, wife of 2010 Nobel Peace Prize winner Liu Xiaobo, stands Dec. 6, 2012, in her Beijing home where she has been held under house arrest for more than two years. Liu trembled uncontrollably and cried as she described how her confinement under house arrest has been absurd and emotionally draining in the two years since her jailed activist husband was named a Nobel Peace laureate.
