Report: China pressured judges at Miss World

China's animosity toward Norway over the Nobel Peace Prize apparently knows no bounds.

Dissident Lu Zhaow Bo won the prize last month. He is a long-time advocate for human rights in China.

Reports say China is still angry about the award -- and pressured judges at this weekend's Miss World contest into giving the contestant from Norway -- low scores.

The 23-year-old Norwegian was considered the front runner -- but did not even crack the top five. Instead -- an 18-year old from Kentucky was crowned the winner.
