Shimon Peres, a former Israeli president and prime minister, whose life story mirrored that of the Jewish state and who was celebrated around the world as a Nobel prize-winning visionary who pushed his country toward peace, died early Wednesday. He was 93.
His son, Chemi, confirmed his death Wednesday morning to reporters gathered at the hospital where Peres had been treated for the past two weeks.
