Archbishop Desmond Tutu Withdraws From Event With Tony Blair Over Iraq War

Nobel Peace Prize recipient Archbishop Desmond Tutu has withdrawn from a planned summit upon learning that former British Prime Minister Tony Blair is also slated to participate.  

Citing Blair’s involvement in the “morally indefensible” Iraq war, a spokesman for Tutu said it would be “inappropriate” for the Archbishop to take part in the event, scheduled to take place in Johannesburg on Saturday.
