Men Who Attacked Malala Sentenced To Life In Prison

An anti-terrorism court in Pakistan sentenced 10 men to life in prison on Thursday for the 2012 attack on teenage education activist Malala Yousafzai, the BBC reported.

Yousafzai was just 15 years old when she was shot in the head while riding her school bus in Pakistan's northwestern Swat valley because she angered the Taliban by publicly campaigning for girls' education. The attack, which drew international attention, also wounded two of her school friends.

Authorities said the defendants were all members of the Pakistani Taliban, ITV News reported.
