Malala & Kailash Satyarthi Receive Joint Nobel award


Pakistani education activist Malala Yousafzai and Indian child rights campaigner Kailash Satyarthi have received the Nobel Peace Prize awards. The Nobel committee described both laureates as “champions of peace”.

Ms Yousafzai said she was there to stand up for the rights of forgotten and frightened children, and raise their voice rather than pity them. Mr Satyarthi said receiving the prize was “a great opportunity” to further his work against child slavery.

They delivered their Nobel lectures during the award ceremony. See more photos below
