China allows foreign doctors to treat paroled Nobel laureate Liu Xiaobo

China has invited Western doctors to visit and treat terminally ill dissident Liu Xiaobo, amid growing international outcry over the government's treatment of the Nobel Peace Prize laureate. The hospital in Shenyang where Liu is being treated invited top cancer specialists from the United States, Germany and other countries to see him at the request of his family, according to a statement released Wednesday by local judicial authorities. "They will join the medical team composed of renowned Chinese oncologists to treat Liu," the statement said.
