Nobel laureate and education activist Malala Yousafzai returned to her native Pakistan, six years after she was shot by Taliban gunmen. Upon her arrival, Malala met Pakistan Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi.
Afghanistan's Defense Ministry said Pakistani Taliban leader Mullah Fazlullah has been killed. Among other crimes, Fazlullah was behind the attempted assassination of Nobel laureate Malala Yousafzai in 2012.
The reported death of Mullah Fazlullah, leader of the Pakistani Taliban, is likely to reduce tensions between Washington and Islamabad, but it is unclear whether Pakistan will support Afghan peace efforts.
Malala Yousafzai, Pakistan's Nobel Peace Prize recipient, has visited her home town of Mingora, where a Taliban militant shot and wounded her in 2012. Security officials said her visit by helicopter was for only one day.
Yousafzai was just 15 years old when she was shot in the head by militants on her way to school. She returns home a Nobel Prize winner and Oxford University student.
