ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION. The International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) won the Nobel Peace Prize on Friday (October 6), as the Norwegian Nobel Committee warned that the risk of a nuclear conflict is greater than for a long time. ICAN describes itself as a coalition of grassroots non-government groups in more than 100 nations. It began in Australia and was officially launched in Vienna in 2007. In July, 122 nations adopted a U.N. Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, but nuclear-armed states including the United States, Russia, China, Britain and France stayed out of the talks. The Nobel Peace Prize, worth nine million Swedish crowns ($1.10 million), will be presented in Oslo on December 10.
