Kailash Satyarthi And Malala Yousafzay Awarded 2014 Nobel Peace Prize

The 2014 Nobel Peace Prize has been won by Kailash Satyarthi and Malala Yousafzay.

The 60-year-old Indian male and the 17-year-old Pakistani female received the prize for “their struggle against the suppression of children and young people and for the right of all children to education”.

The Nobel Peace Prize committee said it was important for an Indian and a Pakistani, a Hindu and a Muslim, to join in a common struggle for education and against extremism.

Yousafzay becomes the youngest person ever to win a Nobel Prize. She supplants the Australian-born British physicist, William Lawrence Bragg, who won the Physics prize in 1915 at the age of 25, sharing it with his father, Sir William Henry Bragg.
