Malala Yousafzai, who had been favourite to land the Nobel Peace Prize, has issued a statement congratulating the eventual winners and thanking her supporters.
The OPCW (Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons), the body overseeing the destruction of Syria's chemical weapons, earlier landed the prestigious award.
The statement from the Pakistani schoolgirl, who has continued to campaign for education after being shot by the Taliban, read:
The OPCW is an important organisation working on the ground to help rid the world of chemical weapons.
I would like to congratulate them on this much-deserved global recognition.
I would also like to thank the people and media in Pakistan, and those from all over the world, for their support, kindness and prayers.
I will continue to fight for the education for every child, and I hope people will continue to support me in my cause.
