  • Ethiopia PM Abiy Ahmed wins 2019 Nobel Peace Prize Posted on 12 October 2019

    The 2019 Nobel Peace Prize has been awarded to Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed who made peace last year with bitter foe Eritrea.

    He was awarded the prize for his efforts to "achieve peace and international cooperation".

    Mr Abiy's peace deal with Eritrea ended a 20-year military stalemate following their 1998-2000 border war.

    He was named as the winner of the 100th Nobel Peace Prize in Oslo, where he will receive the award in December.
