Obama: Others more deserving of Nobel Peace Prize


President Barack Obama, who is in Norway to collect his Nobel Peace Prize, has admitted that others may be more deserving of the award.

The organisers said he was being recognised for his efforts to strengthen international diplomacy, but the move has been criticised by those saying it is premature.

President Obama's comment was made during a news conference with Norwegian Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg.
