Chinese activist Liu Xiaobo's ashes scattered over Yellow Sea

The ashes of Liu Xiaobo, the Chinese human-rights activist who died on July 13, have been scattered at sea.

His family bid him farewell at a ceremony near the northeastern city of Dalian.

The ceremony was organised by the government, but Liu's supporters say it was done to avoid providing a burial ground that could become a shrine for the late Nobel Peace laureate.

Al Jazeera's Florence Looi reports from Beijing.
