Oslo, Norway: The Norweigan Nobel prize Committee announced today Denis Mukwege and Nadia Murad got the Nobel Peace Prize. A 25 years old Nadia Murad said this the big day for me, she is caught by IS and kidnapped by the Islamic state in August 2014 and managed to escape in November of the same year, after being sexually abused.  She said our campaign over the past four years, we would not have seen the steps we have seen toward justice. She has continued to campaign for victims of sexual violence and trafficking and her case has been taken up by human rights lawyer Amal Clooney, who is calling for an investigation into Isis for genocide crimes against the Yazidi community. Just two months ago, Nadia announced she was engaged to fellow Yazidi activist Abid Shamdeen.
