Liu Xiaobo: Western doctors contradict China on Nobel laureate's cancer

Two Western doctors have contradicted Chinese medical experts over the fate of a dying Nobel Peace Prize winner. Liu Xiaobo, an imprisoned pro-democracy advocate, was moved to hospital while serving an 11-year jail term, because of his advanced terminal liver cancer. His doctors in China say he is too ill to travel abroad for treatment, and must remain in China. But medics from the US and Germany who examined Mr Liu disagree, and say he could go abroad for palliative care.
