A Tunisian coalition of workers, employers, human rights activists and lawyers won the Nobel Peace Prize on Friday for pulling the country that sparked the Arab Spring back onto a path toward democracy and preventing it from descending into civil war.
The Norwegian Nobel Committee cited the Tunisian National Dialogue Quartet "for its decisive contribution to the building of a pluralistic democracy" in the North African country following its 2011 revolution.
"It established an alternative, peaceful political process at a time when the country was on the brink of civil war," the committee said in its citation.
The prize is a huge victory for small Tunisia, whose young and still shaky democracy suffered two extremist attacks this year that killed 60 people and devastated the tourism industry.
A British nurse who recovered from Ebola early this year was flown back to a secure hospital unit Friday after suffering "an unusual late complication of her illness," health officials said.
Pauline Cafferkey contracted the virus while working with a charity in Sierra Leone and was discharged from London's specialist Royal Free Hospital in January. But Friday she was flown to the Royal Free Hospital, which houses the U.K.'s only high-level isolation unit following the unspecified "complication." A spokesman for Scotland's NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde health authority confirmed to NBC News on Friday that Ebola had been detected in Cafferkey, but because the nurse had suffered the virus before this was "not a new infection."
Dr Emilia Crighton, director of public health at NHSGGC, said the risk to the public was "very low," but that officials were still following up with people Cafferkey had been in contact with, as a precaution.

When President Barack Obama arrives here Friday, he will find a timber town still in mourning over the shooting that killed eight community college students and a teacher. But he will also find another deeply held emotion — seething anger over his calls for new gun restrictions.
Only a week after a gunman strode into a writing class and opened fire on classmates, many people in the region known as Oregon's Bible Belt are quick to reaffirm their opposition to stricter gun laws. At least one parent of a shooting survivor says his family will not meet with the president, although his daughter said she hopes to do so. And gun-rights supporters plan to protest during Obama's visit.

A new tally shows last month's crush and stampede at the Saudi hajj was the deadliest event to ever strike the annual pilgrimage.
The Associated Press count Friday shows at least 1,453 people died Sept. 24 in Mina near the holy city of Mecca. That figure comes from statements and officials' comments from 19 of the over 180 countries that sent citizens to the five-day annual pilgrimage.
Saudi officials have said their official figure of 769 killed and 934 injured in the disaster remains accurate. Their investigation is ongoing.

The temporary measure comes as Russia steps up its presence in the region to lend muscle to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. Russian forces began bombing targets in Syria last week, drawing criticism from the U.S. and its allies, who say that Russia is mainly targeting rebels fighting Assad instead of ISIS.
