Malala Yousafzai, a now 17-year-old Pakistani, has become the world's youngest ever Nobel peace laureate. On Wednesday she accepted the prize in the company of her parents and fellow survivors of the attack on her school bus. Alongside Malala, this year's Nobel prize has been awarded to an Indian man, Kailash Satyarthi, acknowledged as one of the leading figures in the ongoing battle against child labour.
