Struggling for peace? ‘White Helmets’ Nobel Prize nomination sparks controversy

9588

The ‘White Helmets’ were among those nominated for the 2016 Nobel Peace Prize. The organization, also known as Syrian Civil Defense, rescues civilian victims of bombardments. However, they largely operate in rebel-held areas, sparking accusations that they also have links to militant groups. The White Helmet’s leader was denied entry to the US earlier this year, triggering suspicions that his name had shown up in a terror database, while the State Department struggled to explain his deportation.
