Malala Yousafzai felt 'so much joy' on her return to Pakistan

Malala Yousafzai, the youngest Nobel Peace Prize victor, on Monday returned to London after her first visit to Pakistan since she was shot in the head by Taliban militants for advocating girls' education more than five years ago.

She said her dream to return to Pakistan has been fulfilled due to the efforts by government and armed forces to defeat terrorism. When I asked some questions about its credentials, the anchor said that this is the largest organisation representing 173,000 private schools (mostly English Medium), that they were organising a Black Day on the return of Malala and demanding the ban of the book "I Am Malala", because this book was against Islam. The visit-on which she was accompanied by her father, mother, and two brothers-was kept tightly under wraps. Considering the events of the last time Malala was at home, the heightened security on her trip makes details about her time there scarce. She was able to visit her room in the house where she used to live.

Severely wounded, she was airlifted from one military hospital in Pakistan to another and later flown to the Great Britain for treatment.

Tracking more wet weather for weekend
Next week we will start off in the 50s Monday with a 50% rain chance and slowly warm back into the 60s for the rest of the week. WEDNESDAY: Mostly cloudy skies and scattered rain showers are possible once again, with a high of 56 degrees.

The trip comes two days after Malala, now a student at Oxford University in Britain, made her emotional return to Pakistan, where her surprise visit has been met with widespread joy and pride.

Yousafzai's fund has already built a school in Swat and she says schools are needed to fight extremists. The militants imposed a brutal, bloody rule, but the army drove them out in 2009.

Malala told AFP in Swat that she could see vast changes in the area since 2012-but added she has read reports which claim up to 50 percent of children are still out of school.

The Taliban, who are opposed to the education of girls, have destroyed hundreds of schools in Pakistan.
