The International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) is the winner of this year’s Nobel Peace Prize. The Norwegian Nobel Committee honored the Geneva-based group “for its work to draw attention to the catastrophic humanitarian consequences of any use of nuclear weapons and for its ground-breaking efforts to achieve a treaty-based prohibition of such weapons.” (Martial Trezzini/Keystone via AP)
