Wife of imprisoned Nobel laureate reads her poetry

Footage of Liu Xia, wife of imprisoned Nobel laureate Liu Xiaobo, has emerged.

Ms Liu has never been charged with a crime but she has been forcibly confined to her small Beijing apartment for the past three years.

A new video, smuggled out of her apartment, shows her reading two of her own poems.
