After peace prize, China targets winner's friends

After peace prize, China targets winner's friends

Liu won the prize for his decades of promoting democratic change in China. He is serving an 11-year prison sentence for subversion.

Some of Liu's supporters say they received threatening phone calls from police before they released a letter yesterday calling for Liu to be freed.

Beijing police have not immediately responded today to a faxed question about the complaints of harassment.

China's state-run media has reacted angrily to the peace prize, calling it a tool the West is using to undermine China.
