Tunisia-National Dialogue Quartet is the winner of this year's Nobel Peace Prize.

The announcement was made this morning and is one of five prizes that have been awarded annually since 1901 for outstanding contributions in the fields of physics, chemistry, physiology or medicine, literature, and peace.

Earlier this week, an Irish-born scientist won this year's Nobel Prize in medicine.

William C. Campbell, originally from Donegal, has been credited with helping to secure free drugs to cure river blindness across Africa.
