2. The Taliban in Pakistan have vowed to attack 16-year-old Malala Yousafzai if they ever get the chance again. Malala was shot in the head by the Taliban while campaigning for girls’ right to education last year, but survived the assassination attempt. A spokesperson for the group, Shahidullah Shahid, told the Agence France-Presse, “She is not a brave girl and has no courage. We will target her again and attack whenever we have a chance.”
He reportedly continued, “She accepted that she attacked Islam so we tried to kill her, and if we get another chance we will definitely kill her and that will make us feel proud. Islam prohibits killing women…except those that support the infidels in their war against our religion.”
