Malala’s Attackers Sentenced To Life Imprisonment


A court in Pakistan today has sentenced 10 men to life imprisonment for attempting to kill Nobel-prize winning teenage activist Malala Yousafzai in 2012, though the chief suspect remains at large.


Pakistani Taliban militants boarded the teenager's school bus and shot her in the head in October 2012 for her outspoken views on girls' education, in an attack that also wounded two of her friends and shocked the world.

Malala, now 17, survived and in October last year became the youngest winner of the Nobel Peace Prize in history for her courageous and determined fight for all children to have the right to go to school.
