Regina Leader-Post - - WORLD -

TAIPEI One of the world’s most pres­ti­gious lit­er­ary prizes has been dragged into a spat be­tween China and Tai­wan, after it caved to pres­sure to change the na­tion­al­ity of a Tai­wanese nom­i­nee.

The Man Booker In­ter­na­tional Prize said Fri­day it changed the na­tional ori­gin of Wu Ming-yi, 46, from “Tai­wan” to “Tai­wan, China” after a com­plaint from the Chi­nese em­bassy in Lon­don.
