EU leaders met with protests as they arrive to accept Peace Prize in Norway

European Union leaders have arrived in Norway to accept the 2012 Nobel Peace Prize. The leaders were met with protests as they arrived in Oslo. The prize is considered controversial in Norway – a country which has twice rejected EU membership. Critics argue that the EU should not receive the prize, due to the effects of the Eurozone debt crisis. The award will be handed over during a ceremony at Oslo City Hall on Monday.
