Chinese dissident Hu Jia won the European Parliament's top human rights prize, in a snub to the Beijing government that may strain relations between Europe and China.
A campaigner for civil rights and environmental cleanup, Hu was jailed for 3 1/2 years after testifying to European lawmakers in November 2007. He beat two other finalists for the prize, named for the late Soviet dissenter Andrei Sakharov.
