A court in the northwestern Pakistani city of Mingora on Thursday sentenced 10 men to life imprisonment for attempting to kill Nobel-prize winning activist Malala Yousafzai in 2012, officials said.
"Ten attackers who were involved in the attack on Malala Yousafzai have been sentenced to life imprisonment," a court official told AFP. The news was confirmed by a lawyer present at the hearing.
Militants boarded the teenage activist's school bus and shot her in the head in October 2012 for her outspoken views on girls' education, in an attack that also wounded two of her friends.
