Liu Xia in hospital over heart ailment
(02-20 16:48)

Liu Xia, the wife of imprisoned dissident and Nobel Peace Prize winner Liu Xiaobo, has been hospitalized in Beijing after experiencing heart problems, a family friend told AFP.
Liu, who has been under house arrest since 2010 but has not been charged with any crime, was taken to hospital on Tuesday, Mo Shaoping, a human rights lawyer and close friend said.
The move came less than two weeks after she was admitted to a different Beijing hospital only to be abruptly told to leave, he said.
“They continued looking for a hospital'' after the first one turned her away, Mo said. “Now, the latest news is that Liu Xia has been admitted at a different hospital. But the police won't let her family discuss any of the details.''
