BBC World News to air documentary on Malala Yousafzai


MUMBAI: BBC World News will be airing a documentary on 14-year-old Malala Yousafzai?s life. She recently made the news when members of the Taliban shot her while on her way to school. She is currently in Britain where she?ll receive specialist medical treatment.

In 2009, Yousafzai wrote an anonymous blog for the BBC about life under the Taliban in her home city of Mingora in Pakistan?s Swat Valley. The same year New York Times journalist and film-maker Adam Ellick began to make a film about Yousafzai and her family. The documentary followed her struggle to keep up her education amid Taliban attempts to close all girls? schools in the area and when it was broadcast three years ago on The New York Times? website, it brought Yousafzai to the world?s attention.
