Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos has been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. Announcing the award in Oslo Friday, the judges praised him for negotiating a peace deal with Farc rebels, signed last month after four years of negotiations. However, the agreement was narrowly rejected by Colombians in a referendum last weekend. The 52-year conflict has led to the deaths of an estimated 260,000 people with more than six million people internally displaced.
Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.
