Mainland authorities have detained a man who drove Cable TV reporters to cover a seaside ceremony in Guangdong where about a dozen people paid their respects to Nobel Peace Prize winner Liu Xiaobo who died earlier this month.

Cable TV produced a live online broadcast of the ceremony in Jiangmen on July 19, seven days after Liu's death.

The driver was taken away by mainland police on Wednesday and several people who took part in the ceremony were also detained.

A lawyer representing the group said a legal representative hired by Cable TV had not been allowed to meet the driver.
