US senator and ex-senator honored for nuke efforts

THE HAGUE, Netherlands -- U.S. Sen. Richard Lugar and former Sen. Sam Nunn are being honored for their role in helping ex-Soviet states secure and dismantle huge stocks of nuclear, chemical and biological weapons.

The pair on Wednesday night became the first recipients of a new prize, to be awarded every two years, to people or groups whose work prevents the proliferation of nuclear weapons and cuts the risk of their use.

The prize is awarded by the Carnegie Corporation of New York philanthropic foundation and the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace think tank at the Peace Palace in The Hague.
