Liu Xiaobo Accused Of Incitement

Prominent dissident Liu Xiaobo, one of the most vocal advocates of political reform on the mainland China, has been officially arrested on suspicion of inciting subversion. Liu was arrested on Tuesday, more than 6 months after police took him away a day before the release, on the December 9, of Charter 08, a manifesto that he and other dissidents drafted to call for sweeping political reform and an end to one party rule in the country.
