Malala Yousafzai, the Nobel Peace Prize winner and 17-year-old who was shot at by the Taliban after campaigning for female education, has strongly condemned a massacre by the militant group that has left almost 100 schoolchildren dead in Peshawar.
Here's what she said:
I am heartbroken by this senseless and cold-blooded act of terror in Peshawar that is unfolding before us.
Innocent children in their school have no place in horror such as this. I condemn these atrocious and cowardly acts and stand united with the government and armed forces of Pakistan whose efforts so far to address this horrific event are commendable.
I, along with millions of others around the world, mourn these children, my brothers and sisters - but we will never be defeated.
