Nobel Peace Prize

Congratulations to Malala Yousafzai and Kailash Satyarthi, who received their joint Nobel Peace Prize for 2014 in Oslo Town Hall today. At 17 Malala is the youngest ever recipient of a Nobel Prize, awarded for her dogged campaign in favour of girls' education, despite being shot in the head by a cowardly Taliban gunman. Kailash Satyarthi, aged 60, has campaigned for years against Indian child labour, which amounts to slavery. He has also been threatened with death and two of his colleagues have been killed (CLICK).
