Nobel Peace Prize Awarded to Tunisian Civil Society Organization
The Norwegian Nobel Committee has decided that the Nobel Peace Prize for 2015 is to be awarded to the Tunisian National Dialogue Quartet for its contribution to the building of a pluralistic democracy in Tunisia. The Quartet was formed in the summer of 2013 when the democratization process was in danger of collapsing as a result of political assassinations and widespread social unrest. It established an alternative, peaceful political process at a time when the country was on the brink of civil war. It was instrumental in helping Tunisia establish a constitutional government with civic rights guaranteed to everyone.

U.S. to Halt Withdraw of Troops from Afghanistan
President Obama halted the withdrawal of American military forces from Afghanistan on Thursday, announcing that the United States will keep 5,500 American troops in the country through the end of his term in 2017. While the president stated that he was opposed to “endless war,” he seems to be heading opposite from his original plan of withdrawing all troops from Afghan. The American troop will have a size of 9,800 soldiers until 2016 and then decrease to 5,500 the year after.
