Nobel Peace laureate Liu Xiaobo dies at 61

China’s Nobel peace prize laureate Liu Xiaobo died on Thursday aged 61 after losing a battle with cancer, authorities said, more than a month after he was transferred to a hospital from prison.

The legal bureau in the northeastern city of Shenyang, where he had been hospitalised, confirmed his death in a statement. Chinese judicial bureau says he has died of multiple organ failure.

His supporters and foreign governments had called on China to release Liu and allow him to receive treatment abroad.

In 2010,  Liu was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize while he was serving his sentence in prison in China.
