A Pakistani schoolgirl shot by the Taliban for campaigning for girls to have access to education has been tipped for the Nobel Peace Prize.
"I have Malala Yousafzai on top," Kristian Berg Harpviken, director of Oslo-based peace research institute PRIO, told reporters ahead of the annual awards that start today.
Speaking to the BBC's Panorama programme, the 16-year-old said of the prospect:
"If I win Nobel Peace Prize, it would be a great opportunity for me, but if I don't get it, it's not important because my goal is not to get Nobel Peace Prize, my goal is to get peace and my goal is to see education of every child."
