Arrests Made in Malala’s Shooting

Pakistan has announced that they’ve arrested six men suspected of being involved with the almost-fatal shooting of 15-year-old activist Malala Yousafzai. The main suspect, Atta Ullah Khan—who’s a 23-year-old chemistry student—remains at large, though police have detained his mother, brother, and fiancée. Yousafzai, an outspoken Taliban critic, remains in stable condition and is making progress in a hospital in England after being shot twice at close range. The Taliban has taken responsibility for the attack and have sworn to kill her if she recovers.
