A surprise winner of this year's Nobel Peace Prize... a coalition of civil society groups from Tunisia.

FOX News Radio's Kitty Logan reports:

The Nobel Committee says the Tunisian National Dialogue Quartet helped the country moved to democracy through peaceful talks. The group is made up of unions, human rights groups, and lawyers.

World Leaders and human rights campaigners have welcomed the announcement. Tunisia is the only country to form a stable democracy after the Arab spring.

The winning group says it hopes their award will serve as a positive message to other Middle Eastern countries struggling with turmoil and conflict.
