Tawakkul Karman, a Yemeni pro-democracy activist, has been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

In an exclusive interview with Al Jazeera on Friday, she dedicated the award to the Yemeni people and the Arab Spring.

"This is for the Yemeni revolution; [it is] victory for our peace. We will build our country with peace. I give this award for all the youth in the Arab world," she said.

"All Yemenis [are] happy over the prize. The fight for democratic Yemen will continue.

"[For] Egypt, Libya, Syria and Yemen and all the youth and women, this is a victory for our demand for citizenship and human rights."
