Malala Yousafzai returns to her hometown in Pakistan for the first time since she was shot
Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai on Saturday returned to her hometown in Pakistan for the first time since she was shot in the head by the Taliban at the age of 12. Now 20, Yousafzai has not visited Mingora or anywhere in Pakistan since her family moved to Britain after her attack.
"What I want is for people to support my purpose of education and think about the daughters of Pakistan who need an education," she said in an interview during the trip. "Don't think about me. I don't want any favor, or I don't want everyone to accept me. All I care about is that they accept education as an issue."
