NOBEL PEACE PRIZE: Ethiopia Pm Abiy Ahmed Wins

The 2019 Nobel Peace Prize has been awarded to Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed (left, in photo) who made peace last year with bitter foe Eritrea. Mr. Abiy's peace deal with Eritrea ended a 20-year military stalemate following their 1998-2000 border war.

Following the announcement, Mr. Abiy said he was “humbled and thrilled.” “Thank you very much. It is a prize given to Africa, given to Ethiopia.  I can imagine how the rest of Africa's leaders will take it positively to work on [the] peace-building process on our continent,” he added in a phone call with the secretary of the Norwegian Nobel Committee.
