Former Israeli president Shimon Peres has died at the age of 93, two weeks after suffering a stroke.
Born in Poland in 1923, Mr Peres emigrated to what was then British mandatory Palestine when he was 11.
Shimon Peres, who was one of the last of a generation of Israeli politicians present at the new nation’s birth in 1948, served twice as the country’s prime minister and once as president.
He won the Nobel Peace prize in 1994 for his role negotiating peace accords with the Palestinians a year earlier. He shared his Nobel Peace Prize with Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, who was later assassinated, and Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat.
