Malala Yousafzai, Girl Shot by Taliban, Addresses the United Nation

Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani student who was shot in the head by the Taliban after speaking out for education rights for girls, spoke to the U.N. Youth Assembly on her 16th birthday on Friday. Ms. Yousufzai was shot in the head and neck on 9 October 2012 for opposing Pakistani Taliban restrictions on female education as she left school in Mingora, in the Swat area of Pakistan. Two other girls were also wounded. The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack, saying the youngster was “pro-West,” had been promoting Western culture and had been speaking out against them.
