Malala Attackers Get Life Term

Malala Attackers Get Life Term

An anti-terrorism court in Pakistan has sentenced ten men to a life in jail for attacking child rights activist Malala Yousufzai. The Pakistan army had last year arrested the gunmen involved in the attack. The Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) had taken the responsibility for the attack, which took place in when she was going home from school. Following the attack, the militants fired on the school van, which that injured her schoolmates, Shazia and Qainat. The Taliban gunmen had shot Malala in the head and after getting initial treatment in Pakistan, she was flown to Britain along with her family for treatment, where she currently lives.

 

Later, Malala, along with the Indian child rights campaigner Kailash Satyarthi, was awarded the Nobel Peace prize in 2014.
