THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — Pakistani schoolgirl Malala Yousafzai, who survived a Taliban assassination attempt last year, has been honored with the Children's Peace Prize for her work promoting education for girls in her homeland.
The 16-year-old said she accepted the prize Friday in the historic Knights' Hall in The Hague "on behalf of all the children all over the world who are trying to go to school."
Malala was 15 years old when she and two of her friends were attacked on their way home from school in Pakistan's northwest Swat Valley. She survived and now attends school in England after being flown there for treatment.
Malala was handed the prize by Yemeni Nobel Peace Prize laureate Tawakkol Karman.
