ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION. The International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) celebrated their Nobel Peace Prize win on Friday (October 6) with celebrations at their headquarters in Geneva. Executive Director Beatrice Fihn and Network Coordinator Daniel Hogsta were among some of the team members to share a glass of champagne to toast their award. 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. The Nobel prize seeks to bolster the case of disarmament amid nuclear tensions between Washington and Pyongyang, as well as uncertainty over the fate of the 2015 deal between Iran and major powers to limit Tehran's nuclear programme.
