Tawakul Karman's peace prize: 'Success for revolution'

This year's Nobel Peace Prize has been awarded jointly to three women - Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Liberian Leymah Gbowee and Tawakul Karman of Yemen.

Ms Karman, recognised for playing a lead role in the country's pro-democracy protests and as an advocate of women's rights, is the first Arab woman to win the prize.

Some of her supporters in Yemen's capital Sanaa reacted to the news.
