Tunisia: National Dialogue Quartet wins Nobel Peace Prize

The National Dialogue Quartet in Tunisia has won the Nobel Peace Prize. The group played a key role in mediating between various factions and political parties in the Tunisian government, following the overthrow of longtime ruler Zine El Abidine Ben Ali. Tunisia has successfully held elections following the Arab Spring, but the county has also seen its share of political assassinations and terror attacks since the transition.
