Breaking News: Pakistan Court Jails 10 For Malala Yousafzai Attack.

A court in north-west Pakistan has jailed 10 men for life for the attack on education activist Malala Yousafzai.
Ms Yousafzai, who was 15 at the time, was shot in the head on board her school bus in the Swat valley in 2012, in an attack that
shocked the world.
She was awarded last year's Nobel Peace Prize for campaigning for children's rights, despite the risk to her life.
Officials say the 10 men, who do not include the man named as chief suspect, belonged to the Pakistani Taliban.
Ataullah Khan, a 23-year-old militant, was identified by a police report at the time of the shooting - but he did not appear in the list of 10 men convicted on Thursday.
They were tried in an anti-terrorist court in Swat.
Also not included in the list of the 10 sentenced, according to an unnamed security official quoted by Reuters, were the gunmen who boarded the bus and shot Malala.
The exact charges the men faced remain unclear.

Death threats

Pakistani officials believe local Taliban leader Mullah Fazlullah ordered the attack. He is thought to be in Afghanistan.
Ms Yousafzai, now 17, was treated for her injuries in the UK and currently lives in Birmingham with her family. They are unable to return to Pakistan because of Taliban death threats.
