A senior Taliban commander in Pakistan has written a letter to Malala Yousafzai and said that the attack which saw her shot in the head was not due to her education campaigning but due to the "smear campaign" she ran against the Taliban.
In the letter, Adnan Rasheed said that had he not been in hiding after escaping from prison at the time of the attack he would have tried to stop it from happening.
