    On Tuesday, the brothers of jailed Nobel Peace Prize winner Liu Xiaobo wrote they visited him on September 28th, and he appears in good health.

    Last month, Liu was taken to his family's house in Dalian, where he and his three brothers mourned the death of their father. According to the Hong Kong Human Rights Center, it's the first time they've seen him since July 2010.

    Liu Xiaobo is a literary critic who advocated for peaceful political change and called for an end to the single-party system of the Chinese regime. He was sentenced to eleven years for (quote) "inciting subversion of state power." He won the Nobel Peace Prize one year ago.

    His wife, Liu Xia, has also been under house arrest for the past year, without Internet or phone access. The Hong Kong Human Rights Center also said in a statement she may be allowed to see her husband sometime next month.
