FILE - In this June 9, 2013, file photo, a relative comforts Liu Xia, left, wife of imprisoned Nobel Peace Prize winner Liu Xiaobo, while she cries outside Huairou Detention Center where her brother Liu Hui was jailed in Huairou district, on the outskirts of Beijing. Friends of Liu Xiaobo's family say that efforts to persuade Beijing to allow the couple to leave China were motivated not so much to seek treatment for the terminally ill political prisoner but to facilitate an escape from China for his severely depressed wife, Liu Xia. Liu's death on Thursday, July 13, 2017 has now returned his wife's fate back to the fore, with foreign officials calling for Beijing to release her from house arrest and let her leave the country as she wishes.
