Since surviving the Taliban assassination attempt, Malala has become a global figure for the struggle of all children to study in school.

The 10-member terrorist group that attacked Malala was called Shura and affiliated with the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), a Pakistani channel quoted Major General Asim Saleem Bajwa, the director general of Pakistani Army's media wing ISPR, as saying at a press briefing.

He added that these terrorists who belong to Malakand intended to target 22 other people. They will now be presented in an anti-terrorism court and charged.

Major Gen Bajwa also said it was not correct to link the Pakistan Army with the country's political crisis, and added that the army had presented its stance on support for democracy and the constitution.
