Nobel peace prize winner Malala Yousafzai has dedicated her award to "voiceless" children around the world.

The teenager, who at 17 is the youngest person ever to receive the coveted prize, also called on the Indian and Pakistani prime ministers to attend the award ceremony for the sake of peace.

Malala hit headlines around the world after she survived being shot in the head by a Taliban fighter in October 2012 for going to school.

She later had treatment in Britain for her injuries and went on to make a full recovery.

Malala is now a dedicated campaigner for children's rights to education.
