Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani schoolgirl shot by the Taliban, is being hailed as a champion of women's rights after winning the Nobel Peace Prize.
The 17-year-old is the youngest Nobel Prize winner.
Ms Yousafzai has become an internationally recognised symbol of the opposition to the Taliban's drive to deny women education after being shot in 2012 by Taliban gunmen on her way to school.
She survived after being flown to Britain for treatment.
She has since become a symbol of defiance in the fight against militants operating in Pashtun tribal areas in north-west Pakistan - a region where women are expected to keep their opinions to themselves and stay at home.
