Norway's Foreign Minister, Johan Jorgen Holst, died yesterday and was praised by Israel and the PLO as the man who made their historic peace accord possible, Reuter reports from Oslo. Holst, 56, who secretly helped broker the agreement, had a stroke last month. His doctor said he was suffering from exhaustion and probably died of a new stroke.
