Malala wins Nobel Peace prize

Pakistani child education activist Malala Yousafzai and Indian child rights activist Kailash Satyarthi have won the Nobel Peace prize.

At 17, Malala is the youngest recipient of the prize.

The teenager was shot in the head by Taliban gunmen in October 2012 for campaigning for girls’ education.

The committee said the pair were awarded the prize “for their struggle against the suppression of children and young people”.
