Three years after militants shot Malala Yousafzai — then 14 years old — as she returned in a bus from her school in Pakistan’s Swat district, an anti-terrorism court has sentenced 10 Taliban militants to 25 years in prison.
Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan militants had claimed responsibility for the 2012 attack on Malala, a child activist campaigning for the rights of girls to be educated. Malala — now 17 and an internationally known name, celebrated for her unyielding condemnation of Taliban’s regressive diktats — won the Nobel Peace Prize last year.
