BEIJING — More than 100 Chinese activists signed and released an open letter asking that Nobel Peace Prize winner Liu Xiaobo be released from prison.

The letter released late Thursday and posted online also asks China's leaders to respond to the peace prize "with realism and reason."

China has responded angrily to the award, saying the West is using it to undermine China and calling Liu a criminal.
