Nobel prize winner Malala Yousafzai for the first time since shooting in Pakistan

The Pakistani nobel prize winner Malala Yousafzai is the first time since they were in 2012, was shot in the head by a talibanstrijder, again returned to her country of birth. That report to local media Thursday.

The now 20-year-old Yousafzai landed Thursday morning along with her parents at the international airport of Islamabad. In Pakistan, she will be a four-day visit, with scheduled meetings with prime minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi and the head of the Pakistani armed forces, general Qamar Javed Bajwa. It is not clear whether her hometown, Swat, in the north of the country, is on the program.

In Swat was Yousafzai in October 2012 – when she was 15 years old – on the way home from school shot in the head by the taliban. They then stopped for almost three years, a blog for BBC Urdu about her life under talibanbewind. The attack called for a lot of international outrage and Yousafzai – that to Great Britain was transferred for medical care – became a figurehead of the struggle for the right of women to education.

In 2014 she was awarded as the youngest ever Nobel Peace prize. Last year she was admitted to the university of Oxford to politics, philosophy and economics to study.
