Colombian President Wins Nobel Peace Efforts to End Civil War

Colombian president wins Nobel Peace Prize for efforts to end civil war: OSLO, Norway (CNS) -- Even though the people of Colombia rejected the terms of a peace accord ending more than 50 years of civil war, the Nobel committee chose Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos as the winner of the 2016 Nobel prize for peace.

This is not as strange as one might think at first.  The people aren't rejecting peace.  They want peace.  They are rejecting certain terms in the peace agreement.  Discussion is ongoing.  President Juan Manuel Santos has his hands full.
