The winners of the Nobel Peace Prize, the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN), Sunday warned mankind's destruction is just one "impulsive tantrum away" as the United States and North Korea exchange warlike threats over the nation's nuclear tests.ICAN, a coalition of hundreds of NGOs around the world, has worked for a treaty banning nuclear weapons which was adopted in July by 122 countries.Several survivors of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki nuclear bombings, which killed more than 220,000 people 72 years ago, attended the ceremony in the Oslo City Hall.One of them, Setsuko Thurlow, received the Nobel on behalf of ICAN jointly with Fihn. Although the number of nuclear weapons has dropped since the end of the Cold War, there are still around 15,000 atomic bombs on earth.
