ARCHBISHOP Tutu wins 2013 Templeton Prize

Posted: Updated:

Former Archbishop Desmond Tutu is this year's Templeton Prize winner.

The 81-year old spiritual leader was awarded the prize for his work to end apartheid in South Africa.

The Templeton Prize honors individuals who've made "exceptional contributions" to spiritual progress.

The prize committee cites Tutu's commitment to faith and his messages of love and forgiveness as reasons for why they chose him.

Tutu was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1984, also for his efforts to end apartheid.
