This year’s Nobel Peace Prize winners, Kailash Satyarthi and Malala Yousufsay, made an appearance on Wednesday night in front of adoring crowds carrying candles in Oslo.
Point of view
No one knew Malala six years ago, but today she is known in every part of the world.
The award was officially handed over to the champions of children’s rights in a ceremony earlier in the day.
And far away in Pakistan, at a school named after Malala who survived a Taliban attack, there were also celebrations.
One girl at the school, Asia Mohammad Ismail, said: “We’re happy that Malala received the Nobel Prize.
“The enemy wanted to block her from being educated. She confronted the enemy and made her way forward, and brought fame to our school and our country.”
Teacher Mejabeen Ashfaq said: “No one knew Malala six years ago, but today she is known in every part of the world. We feel proud to be part of this school. Every girl would want to be like Malala.”
Malala is the youngest person ever to receive a Nobel. She says her prize money will go towards the Malala Fund, promoting girls’ education.
