BEIJING  — An imprisoned Chinese dissident who won this year's Nobel Peace Prize was allowed to meet with his wife and told her in tears that he was dedicating the award to victims of a 1989 military crackdown on pro-democracy protesters, his wife and a close friend said.

Liu Xia, the wife of democracy campaigner Liu Xiaobo, also confirmed in a Twitter message that she had been placed under house arrest since Friday.

Liu Xia said the dissident's jailers had informed him of his prize a day before their meeting.

"Brothers, I have returned," Liu wrote Sunday. "Seen Xiaobo, the prison told him the news about his award on the night of the 9th."
