FROM THE BBC
Irish rock stars Bob Geldof and Bono are among some 191 nominees in the running for the 2006 Nobel Peace Prize.
Geldof was nominated for organising last year's Live8 charity concerts, while U2 frontman Bono was proposed for campaigning against world poverty.

Other nominees include former US Secretary of State Colin Powell and Israeli dissident Mordechai Vanunu.

Last year the $1.3m prize was won by UN atomic agency chief Mohamed ElBaradei. The winner will be unveiled in October.
