Malala Yousafzai’s young friends in Pakistan vow to never be subdued by militants
As is often the case, children have a way of displaying more courage than many adults. I just hope their government keeps them safe.
Malala Yousafzai still lies in a coma as military surgeons watch over her.The school she attended in the former Taliban stronghold of the Swat Valley has remained shut since she was shot in the neck and head by assassins on Tuesday.But that did not stop about 100 of her schoolmates assembling on Friday morning to pray for her safety. Some cried, while others described a role model, a girl who had blogged about Taliban brutality when even the government was prepared to turn a blind eye.
