Pakistan’s army said on Friday
authorities had arrested a group of Taliban militants responsible for
shooting Malala Yousafzai, a teenage activist who was targeted for her
campaign against Taliban efforts to deny girls education.
Taliban militants have claimed responsibility for shooting Malala in
2012 for her passionate advocacy of women’s right to education but no
one had until now been arrested. Two other schoolgirls were wounded in
Asim Bajwa, head of the army’s press wing, told reporters that 10 attackers had been identified and arrested.
