Islamic hardliners announce fatwa on Malala Yousafzai
by Rob Crilly
British-based Islamic radicals are preparing to announce a fatwa on Malala Yousafzai, the 15-year-old girl shot by the Pakistan Taliban, for her role in standing up to extremists.
The story of Malala, who is recovering at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham, has touched millions of people around the world since she was attacked by a gunman on her way home from school last month.
She had dared to defy the Pakistan Taliban by promoting girls education and by documenting their abuses in a blog written in 2009.
