Liu Xiaobo jailed for subversion
Leading Chinese dissident Liu Xiaobo has been jailed for 11 years for "inciting subversion of state power".
The trial, from which Western diplomats and journalists were barred, followed Mr Liu's co-authorship of a document last year urging political reform.
Several people were apparently hurt at a Hong Kong protest over the sentence.
"All I can tell you now is 11 years," the defendant's wife, Liu Xia, told reporters. Diplomats said they were told by Mr Liu's lawyers that he had been deprived of his political rights for a further two years.
Mr Liu is a prominent government critic and veteran of the 1989 Tiananmen Square democracy protests.
A writer and former university professor, he has been in jail since 2008, after being arrested for writing a document known as Charter 08.
The charter called for greater freedoms and democratic reforms in China, including an end to Communist one-party rule.
