Pakistani Activist, 14, Attacked

A 14-year-old girl who has campaigned for women’s rights in Pakistan was shot on her way home from school in the country’s northwestern Swat region on Tuesday. Malala Yousafzai was nominated for an international peace award after she published her diary in 2009 about her life under the Taliban, who have since been ejected from the region. It’s unclear if Yousafzai was targeted in the attack. Initial reports said her injuries are not life-threatening.
