Girl Education Advocate Malala Yousafzai opens a school to mark 18th birthday

Malala Yousafzai, the youngest winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, celebrated her 18th birthday yesterday, the 12th of July in Lebanon by opening a school for Syrian refugee girls and called on world leaders to invest in "books not bullets".

The Girl Education Campaigner Malala Yousafzai was attacked by the Taliban in her native Pakistan in 2012 because of her campaign for girls' education.

In her speech at the school, funded by the Malala Fund, she criticised world leaders for "failing" Syrian refugees, especially Syrian children.
