PakistanMalala Yousafzai nominated for Nobel Peace prize 2013

OSLO: Pakistani teen activist Malala Yousafzai has been nominated for this year’s Nobel Peace Prize, the award will be announced in early October.

The 15-year-old Pakistani schoolgirl was shot in the head by Taliban as she was returning home from school on October 9 last year. Malala has since become a worldwide recognized symbol of opposition to the Taliban’s drive to deny women education, and against religious extremism.

“A prize to Malala would not only be timely and fitting with a line of awards to champions of human rights and democracy, but also … would set both children and education on the peace and conflict agenda,” said the head of the Peace Research Institute of Oslo, Kristian Berg Harpviken.
