Peace prize 'slap in face to US'

The award of the Nobel Peace Prize to the head of the United Nations nuclear agency Mohamed ElBaradei is a slap in the face to Washington, say the papers.

While they are split on whether he deserves the honour, the Times reminds us of his repeated clashes with the US in the run-up to the Iraq War.

The Telegraph believes the Nobel committee has rewarded the agency's failure to stop the proliferation of nuclear weapons.

But the Guardian argues it could advance the cause of non-proliferation.
