Nobel Peace Prize laureate Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos receives the medal and diploma from the Norwegian Nobel Committee member Berit Reiss-Andersen during the Peace Prize awarding ceremony at the City Hall in OsloBy Alister Doyle OSLO (Reuters) - Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos said an accord to end a 52-year civil war with Marxist rebels was a "ray of hope" for solving conflicts from Syria to South Sudan as he collected the Nobel Peace Prize on Saturday. In an acceptance speech that quoted an anti-war song by Bob Dylan, the 2016 Literature Laureate, Santos said Colombia itself had drawn inspiration from other peace processes such as those in South Africa and Northern Ireland. Santos collected the prize - a gold medal, diploma and a check for 8 million Swedish crowns ($870,000) at a ceremony in Oslo's city hall for his efforts to end the conflict with Marxist FARC rebels in which 220,000 people died.
