It's being reported by NBC that Malala Yousafzai – the young girl shot in the face by the Taliban – has been formally nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize.
Malala, who was treated for her injuries at Birmingham's Queen Elizabeth Hospital, was shot on her way home from school for her efforts in promoting girls' education in Pakistan.
Her name was put forward by three members of the Norwegian parliament on Friday.
If awarded, Malala will be the youngest recipient and one of only 15 females to be awarded the prize.
Malala Yousufzai, the 15 year old shot in the head by the Taliban, has been reunited with her friend who was injured in the same attack.
It is the first day of term in Swat Valley Pakistan and the girls in High School have much to be thankful for.
Speaking for the first time since her attack by the Taliban, schoolgirl Malala Yousafzai said she wants every child to be educated.
