China Makes Nobel Prize Warning

From BBC News:

China has said it hopes the Nobel Peace Prize will reward what it called “the right person”, amid reports that jailed dissidents top the list of favourites.

The Prize is to be awarded on Friday in the Norwegian capital, Oslo.

The Chinese foreign ministry said some past choices had gone against the prize’s original purpose of promoting world peace and human progress.

The award went to the Dalai Lama 19 years ago, and dissidents Hu Jia and Gao Zhisheng are on this year’s list.
