Child education activist Malala Yousafzai wins Nobel Peace Prize
Pakistan child education activist Malala Yousafzai has been named as joint winner of the Nobel Peace Prize with Kailash Satyarthi, an Indian child rights campaigner.
The 17-year-old is the youngest ever person to receive the prestigious award.
The teenager, who now lives in Birmingham, was shot in the head by Taliban gunmen in 2012 for campaigning for girls’ education.
In a press conference at Edgbaston High School for Girls, Malala said she was “honored” to receive the award, saying it makes her feel more “powerful and courageous”.
