Nobel winner Malala Yousafzai leaves Pakistan to return to Britain
Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai left Pakistan for London on Monday (April 2) a local official said, after a four-day whirlwind visit back to her homeland, her first since militants nearly killed her in 2012.
Yousafzai and her family were taken to Islamabad airport in a security convoy and they boarded a London-bound flight, said aviation official Akmal Kayani.
Known by her first name, Malala, has been in Pakistan since Thursday (March 29), on her first trip home since Pakistani Taliban militants shot her in the head on her way home from school for advocating for greater education for girls.
In 2014, Malala became the youngest Nobel laureate, honoured for her work with the MalalaFoundation, a charity she set up to support education advocacy groups with a focus on Pakistan, Nigeria, Jordan, Syria and Kenya.
