Authorities in the Chinese capital on Friday detained a group of activists who tried to visit Liu Xia, the wife of jailed Nobel peace laureate Liu Xiaobo under house arrest at her Beijing home, and beat up Hong Kong journalists who tried to follow them.

Tibetan writer Tsering Woeser, among 10 women set to win the International Women of Courage Award from the U.S. State Department, said she is dedicating the prize to the more than 100 Tibetans who have set themselves on fire in protests challenging Chinese rule in Tibetan areas.

She also said she would not relent in her struggle to uphold Tibetan rights.
