Nobel laureates urge China to release peace prize winner

More than 100 Nobel prize winners are urging China's next President Xi Jimpin to free Chinese dissident and Novel Peace Prize winner Liu Xiaobo. 134 Novel winners from around the world sent a letter to Mr. Xi Tuesday. They asked him to immediately and unconditionally release Liu Xioabo. He is serving an 11-year prison sentence for inciting anti-government activities. The Nobel prize winners also want Liu Xiaobo's wife, Liu Xia, freed from house arrest. She was placed under house arrest after her husband won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2010.

Another perfect job. You're on a roll! (これは成功が連続しているときに使われる言葉ですよ。)

Just one tiny thing: Technically, "Liu Xiaobo's wife, Liu Xia freed" should be written "Liu Xiaobo's wife, Liu Xia, freed" with an extra comma after her name, since in this case, the commas encapsulate the explanatory information. Not a big deal at all, and it might just be a typo, but I thought that you might want to know.

Thank you.

I should pay attention to the "comma".
