Malala petitions Pakistani govt following teacher's death

Malala Yousufzai and her father Ziauddin on her first day of school in the UK

Malala Yousufzai and her father Ziauddin have become the first signatories of a petition calling for better protection for teachers and students in Pakistan.

The petition, addressed to the president of Pakistan, is in response to the killing of a teacher on her way to work at a girls' school in Pakistan's north-west tribal region on Tuesday.

The killing took place not far from where Malala herself was shot in the head as she returned from school in October 2012.
