and the Nobel Peace prize goes to.....
The Nobel Peace Prize has been awarded to the world's chemical weapons watchdog.
The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons is recognized for its extensive efforts to rid the world of such arsenals.
The group is based in The Hague, and was formed in 1997 to enforce the Chemical Weapons Convention, the first global treaty to outlaw an entire class of weapons.
The organization has 189 member states and the peace prize comes as it oversees the proposed removal and destruction of Syria's chemical weapons.
