Only cowardly animals taking orders from other cowards would attempt to kill a defenseless 14-year-old girl.

Malala should have won the Nobel Peace prize.

Story changes quite quickly. For last two days it was said that attackers arrested and the mastermind identified. Now a different story. Thats the reason people never believe what comes out officially. Can't they just remain stick with one version. If they couldn't reach killers of thousands of people in karachi within a decade than how could they reach malala attackers within few days.

This is not the way to conduct investigation .... why are they disclosing details about the suspects? In a way they are providing information to the criminals. I think the Pakistani police need to learn some basics of fighting crimes.
