She now lives in Birmingham in the UK.. Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif congratulated Malala Yousafzai, calling her the pride of his country, reported the BBC.. Her achievement is unparalleled and unequalled.. Girls and boys of the world should take the lead from her struggle and commitment, he said..

The Prime Minister said: The Prize winners engagement to secure children s rights and education has inspired a whole world.. She congratulates the Peace Prize winners and refers to the justification of the Nobel Committee, where their effort against suppression of children and youths and for children s right to education are emphasized.. It is a requirement for a peaceful  ...   of children leads to the continuation of violence from generation to generation.. Showing great personal courage, Kailash Satyarthi, maintaining Gandhi s tradition, has headed various forms of protests and demonstrations, all peaceful, focusing on the grave exploitation of children for financial gain.. He has also contributed to the development of important international conventions on children s rights..

This she has done under the most dangerous circumstances.. Through her heroic struggle she has become a leading spokesperson for girls rights to education.. The Nobel Committee regards it as an important point for a Hindu and a Muslim, an Indian and a Pakistani, to join in a common struggle for education and against extremism..

In 2000 the figure was 78 million higher.. The world has come closer to the goal of eliminating child labour..

  • Title: Martial arts champ in extreme marital abuse - Europe's News in English
    Descriptive info: NTB/The Local | 10 Oct 2014, 15:29.. The 42-year-old is accused of almost continually during 12 years of marriage raping, drugging and violently assaulting his wife.. Three page of charges were read out in Oslo district court on Friday that told how the woman was subjected to repeated rape and sexual assault, violent and often sadistic acts of cruelty, as well as mental abuse over a two year period.. Øystein Storrvik, the accused s lawyer, said to NTB: My client accepts guilt for the parts of the charge concerning violence, but denies guilt for rape.. His opinion is that the sex was voluntary.. On several occasions during the 35-year-old woman s ordeals, she lost consciousness and suffered serious internal bleeding and fracture injuries.. The case only came to the attention of the police after the hospital treating her injuries reported it.. The charged man is a 42-years-old, former Norway champion in his weight of a martial art.. The victim - a seven years younger woman - was his co-dependent, before they married.. Assistant lawyer for the prosecution, Nadia C.. Hall, said: The trial is of course a great exertion upon my client.. She will be present in  ...   neither dared nor could resist the assaults because she feared continued violence and was strongly under the effect of the drugs that her husband forced her to take.. Prosecutor Cecilie Schløsser Müller confirmed to NTB that she will plead that the 42-year-old to be sentenced to imprisonment in custody but doesn t want to say anything about the length of the penalty.. She will lead 27 witnesses (including six expert witnesses), physicians reports, and show videos and pictures seized by the police.. The 42-year-old is supposedly also connected to many other cases, inluding sex orgies, that have been brought to the police s attention.. In the case of the sex parties, the man was questioned but not charged by police.. The 42-year-old claimed that all sexual activity was voluntary from all parts.. The case that will appear in Oslo district court on Monday exclusively involves the violence and the assaults that the man is charged for against his co-dependent and later his wife.. According to Møller, it is too early to say what will happen in relation to the other points of the charge.. Oslo district court have reserved four weeks to the trial of this case..

  • Title: Norwegian child bride to marry in Oslo - Europe's News in English
    Descriptive info: The Local | 10 Oct 2014, 10:35.. Norway s first child bride and the schoolgirl in the photos, is actually an actress from Sweden and the blog was ghostwritten by global charity Plan International.. The blog, which is written in Norwegian.. , appears to have been penned by 12-year-old named Thea, who is preparing to get married to her 37-year-old fiance Geir on Saturday.. Check out the girl s mother s exclusive interview with The Local.. In it, she describes the countdown to her wedding on October 11th, and posts selfies of herself trying on dresses, sampling wedding cakes, trying out make-up and visiting the church in Oslo where she is due to get married.. Hundreds of worried readers in Norway commented on the blog, and asked Thea if she was really going to marry a man 25 years her senior and the hashtag #stoppbryllupet (stop the wedding) started trending on Twitter earlier this week.. But it has been revealed the girl in the photos is actually 12-year-old Swedish actress called Maja Bergström, who was recruited  ...   adding: She was pissed and said I had to stop and act like one child now that I will soon have my own family to take care of.. Plan International says it recruited a Swedish girl to take part in the campaign, rather than a Norwegian one to avoid its secret leaking.. Yes, the girl is Swedish.. The aim was to use a blonde girl in a campaign like this, is to raise awareness about the girls that are married off against their will every day, Sofia Klemming Nordenskiöld from the Swedish arm of Plan International told The Local.. It s a fact that when we as an organization talk about 12-year-old Nargis who was married last week in Bangladesh it s hard to make people react, but when you read about Scandinavian Thea marrying a 37-year-old man the reaction is totally different.. She added: It s just how it works, like it or not.. The important thing for us is that the issue is raised and Plan has got a huge reach through this campaign..
