10 Taliban Jailed

In a closed hearing, a court in north-west Pakistan has jailed 10 members of the Pakistani Taliban for life for the brutal and cowardly attack on education activist Malala Yousafzai in the Swat valley in 2012. She was only 15 at the time. Men boarded her school bus and shot her in the head. She now lives and studies in England, where she was treated for her life-threatening injuries. Last year she was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for her steadfast advocacy of children's education, despite the threats to her life (CLICK).
