US President Barack Obama is due to collect his Nobel Peace Prize at a ceremony in Norway’s capital, Oslo.
The prize was awarded to Mr Obama in October for his “extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and co-operation between peoples”.
The ceremony comes days after Mr Obama announced he was sending 30,000 extra US soldiers to the war in Afghanistan.
US officials said he was aware of the “juxtaposition” and would refer to US wars in his acceptance speech.
There was a mixed reaction when Mr Obama was named as the winner of the prize for 2009.
