Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai has returned to Pakistan for the first time since being shot by Taliban militants. Ms Malala, now aged 20 and a vocal human rights activist, was shot in the head by a gunman for campaigning for female education in 2012.
She said, 5 years ago, I was shot in an attempt to stop me from speaking out for girls’ education. Today, I attend my first lectures at Oxford.
She is expected to hold meetings with Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi. Details of the trip have been kept secret “in view of the sensitivity”, an official told AFP news agency.
