Great Regulars: More than 100 Nobel prize-winners have called

on Chinese leader-in-waiting Xi Jinping to release jailed Nobel peace laureate Liu Xiaobo, and to free his wife Liu Xia from house arrest.

Winners of Nobel prizes for peace, but also for physics, chemistry, medicine, literature and economics, signed an open letter to Xi, who will be sworn in as China's new president in March, calling for the immediate and unconditional release of the couple.
