Now a poised young woman with a Nobel Prize to her credit, Malala Yousafzai, an outspoken advocate for girls' education while still in her teens, returns to her home in the Swat region of Pakistan.
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.
Nobel peace laureate Malala Yousafzai has returned to Pakistan for the first time since she was shot by the Taliban in 2012. DW examines why Malala – loved around the world – is not so popular in her home country.
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.
