首位女性黑人诺贝尔文学奖得主 托妮·莫里森

US author Toni Morrison, whose 1987 novel "Beloved" about a runaway slave won a Pulitzer Prize and contributed to a body of work that made her the first black woman to be presented the Nobel Prize in Literature, died at the age of 88. A spokesman for her publishing company announced the death but did not provide an immediate cause. The Washington Post said she died on August 8 at a New York hospital. Morrison was a commercial as well as critical success, drawing praise for writing in a vivid, lyrical style while assessing issues of race, gender and love in American society. "Beloved" was set during the US Civil War and based on the true story of a woman who killed her 2-year-old daughter to spare her from slavery.

法国前总统 雅克·希拉克

Former French president Jacques Chirac died on Sept 26, at the age of 86. The former leader was a centre-right politician who served as head of state from 1995 to 2007. The two-term French president was the first leader to acknowledge France's role in the Holocaust and defiantly opposed the US-led war in Iraq in 2003. French President Emmanuel Macron hailed the former head of state as a "great Frenchman" who had "embodied" France. Chirac was also an important foreign leader with a deep affinity to China. He was passionate about Chinese history and culture. After visiting the Qin Shihuang Terracotta Warriors in Xi'an in 1978, he was greatly stunned and called the place "the eighth world wonder". Chirac left a profound footprint in Sino-French relations. Between the times he assumed and left office as president, he visited China four times, tracking almost half of the country. In the meantime, Sino-French relations kept improving. In 1997, China and France established a comprehensive cooperative partnership, and in 2004, they established a comprehensive strategic partnership.
