Chinese activist and Nobel Peace Prize winner Liu Xiaobo has been cremated in a private ceremony in the north-eastern city of Shenyang.

His ashes were later scattered in the sea, his brother said.

Mr Liu, who had been serving an 11-year prison term for “subversion”, died of liver cancer on Thursday. He was China’s most prominent dissident.

His wife, Liu Xia, has been under house arrest since 2010. But she attended Saturday’s funeral.BBC
