Israeli President Ezer Weizman is a front-runner for this year’s Nobel Peace Prize, a Norwegian newspaper reported Monday. Among those who nominated Weizman was Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat, who cited the Israeli president’s consistent support of the Middle East peace process. The Nobel Institute refused comment on the report, but confirmed that there are 136 candidates for the prize, which will be announced Oct. 15.
