China Nobel laureate Liu Xiaobo's brother-in-law jailed

A Chinese court has sentenced the brother-in-law of the jailed Nobel laureate Liu Xiaobo to 11 years in prison on charges of fraud.

The lawyer and family of Liu Hui say the sentence is unjust and is meant to send a message to other political activists.

John Sudworth reports from Shanghai.
