Deputy Foreign Minister Rabbi Michael Melchior, former Palestinian Minister Sheikh Talal al-Sider, and Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem Michel Sabah have been selected to share the 2002 Coventry International Prize for Peace and Reconciliation.

The three men headed a multi-faith gathering in Alexandria in January, which issued a declaration calling for an end to the killing of innocent civilians and to all violence in the region.

The prize was announced by the Bishop of Coventry, Colin Bennetts. It will be awarded in a ceremony in London next week.
