Nobel Peace Prize for Colombia’s Juan Manuel Santos

Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos has been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts to end the 52-year conflict with left-wing rebels. The Nobel committee in Norway praised him for his peace agreement with FARC rebels, signed last month after four years of negotiations.

However, Colombians narrowly rejected the deal in a vote last weekend. The conflict has killed about 260,000 people. More than six million have been internally displaced.
