The World

October 09, 1987

The committee deciding the 1987 Nobel Peace Prize said it has reached a decision, but reports persisted that a literature prize winner has yet to be selected. The official announcement of the peace prize is to be made Tuesday. Four main candidates reportedly are being considered by the Nobel Institute in Oslo--Philippine President Corazon Aquino, Argentine President Raul Alfonsin, jailed South African nationalist Nelson Mandela and the Geneva-based World Health Organization. In Stockholm, the Swedish Academy of Letters has yet to set a date for the announcement of the literature prize, but front-runners were said to be Russian-born poet Joseph Brodsky and Mexican poet and diplomat Octavio Paz.
