Charter 08

Liu Xia, wife of 2010 Nobel Peace Prize winner Liu Xiaobo, reacts to an unexpected visit by a group of activists at her home in Beijing on December 28, 2012.

Who's afraid of whom at the Lius' home?

You would have to be heartless not to feel sorry for the frightened woman, wearing a beanie against the indoor cold of her Beijing home, who took fright at a bunch of troublemakers barging through her front door last Friday.
