Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai has returned to Pakistan. She is expected to hold meetings with Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi.
Details of the trip have been kept secret “in view of the sensitivity”, an official told AFP news agency.
Pakistani actress Mahira Khan has welcomed Malala Yousafzai, whom she described as “baby girl”, for returning to Pakistan six years after she was attacked.
