Current Affairs International - 7 October 2016

1. Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos won the 2016 Nobel Peace Prize today for his efforts to end the 52-year conflict with Marxist rebels. This is a surprising move as Colombians voted "No" to an agreement he signed with the rebels.


2. U.S. employment growth unexpectedly slowed for the third straight month in September as payrolls increased by 156,000 compared to gains of 167,000 jobs in August. US unemployment rate increased by 0.1% to 5% in the same month, which may impact Fed-s rate hike decision later this year.
