Image 5 of 12


On Oct. 8, the chairman of the Norwegian Nobel Committee, Thorbjoern Jagland, holds up a photograph of jailed Chinese dissident Liu Xiaobo, after announcing that Liu is the recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize for 2010, for decades of nonviolent struggle for human rights, an award that Beijing had anticipated and bitterly criticized. Jagland said on Friday that China, the world's second biggest economy, should expect to be under greater scrutiny as it becomes more powerful, just as the United States was after World War II.
