Malala Yousafzai has been presented with the Nobel Peace Prize at a ceremony in Norway.

Receiving the prize at Oslo's City Hall, the 17-year-old, said: "I tell my story, not because it is unique, but because it is not. It is the story of many girls".

Yousafzai, who was shot in the head by the Taliban in 2012 for advocating girls' right to education, won the prize alongside campaigner against child trafficking and labour Kailash Satyarthi.

She added: "I am pretty certain that I am also the first recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize who still fights with her younger brothers.

"I want there to be peace everywhere, but my brothers and I are still working on that."
