Former Israeli PM & President Shimon Peres died

Former Israeli PM and President Shimon Peres died yesterday, two weeks after he suffered a massive stroke. He was 93. Shimon Peres, Israel's most eminent elder statesman, was part of almost every major development from the country's founding in 1948. 

In a career spanning nearly 70 years, he served in a dozen cabinets and was twice a Labour Prime Minister. He shared the Nobel Peace Prize with the late former Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and late Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat for reaching, in 1993, an interim peace deal which never hardened into a lasting treaty.
