China’s official news media has aired its anger over the award of the Nobel Peace Prize to imprisoned writer Liu Xiaobo on 8 October, with editorials describing Liu as a “criminal” and accusing the prize committee of attempting to “humiliate” the country.

Some newspapers in Hong Kong were upset at the Nobel Committee’s decision, whilst others praised Liu’s campaign of non-violence for democracy in China.

The Taiwanese press, although pleased with the award, was concerned about its potential implications for cross-strait relations.
