The Pakistan court has sentenced ten gunmen to life in prison, for their attack on Malala Yousafza over two years ago.

The accused are Suleman, Irfan, Shaukat, Umar, Ikramullah, Adnan, Zafar Iqbal, Israrur Rehman, Izhar and Zafar Ali.

After the attack, Malala was flown to Britain for treatment, where she now resides, and miraculously survived. She has gone to inspire many young girls across the world, winning the Nobel Peace Prize for her activism on the education of girls.

Malala, who is now an education activist received the Nobel Peace Prize award along with Indian child rights campaigner Kailash Satyarthi.

Yousafzai, 17, was shot in the head by Taliban gunmen in October 2012 for campaigning for girls’ education and now lives in the UK. She is the youngest-ever recipient of a Nobel prize.
