#BIGPICTURE: Malala Yousafzai returns home for the first time


The world's youngest Nobel Laureate returns home to Pakistan. Malala Yousafzai, shot and gravely wounded by Taliban militants 6 years ago, gave a speech at the prime minister's office during her homecoming: "I still can't believe that it is actually happening". Malala was attacked because of her campaign to better girls education in her home country. Today, she is an international advocate for women -- hailed as a hero by many.
