Christiane Amanpour CBE

CNN Chief International Correspondent Christiane Amanpour has been named as a Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) by Queen Elizabeth II. The honour comes as part of the Queen's official birthday. Salman Rushdie, Ian Botham, Barry Humphries and Joe Cocker are amongst others that appear on the honours list.

CBE is the second-highest honour that can be given out by the Queen; a knighthood is the highest honour. OBE and MBE come third and fourth. The title was awarded to Amanpour "for services to journalism".
