The Nobel Peace Prize has been awarded to journalists Maria Ressa of the Philippines and Dmitry Muratov of Russia.
They were cited for their fight for freedom of expression.
The winners were announced Friday by Berit Reiss-Andersen, chair of the Norwegian Nobel Committee.
Last year’s prize went to the World Food Program, which was established in 1961 at the behest of U.S. President Dwight Eisenhower to fight hunger around the globe. The Rome-based UN agency was lauded for seeking to end starvation as “a weapon of war and conflict.”
