Malala is the youngest Nobel Peace Prize EVER!

Pakistani activist has Malala Yousafzai urged children to "stand up for their rights" after becoming the youngest person to win the Nobel Peace Prize.

Kailash Satyarthi and Malala Yousafzai
Kailash Satyarthi and Malala Yousafzai were jointly recognised for their efforts to improve child rights

She said she was "honoured" to receive the award, saying it made her feel "more powerful and courageous".
The 17-year-old was jointly awarded the prize with Kailash Satyarthi, an Indian child rights campaigner.
The teenager was shot in the head by Taliban gunmen in October 2012 for campaigning for girls' education.
She is the youngest ever recipient of the prize.
Speaking at a news conference in Birmingham, UK, where she now lives, she revealed she found out the news after being called out of her chemistry class at school.
Despite her excitement, she said she attended her afternoon lessons in physics and English.
Malala Yousafzai said she was in a chemistry lesson when she got the news

She thanked her father for "not clipping her wings" and said she was proud to have shown that "a girl is not supposed to be a slave".
Dedicating the award to "all those children who are voiceless", she said: "My message to children around the world is: stand up for your rights."
She said she was "really happy to be sharing this award with a person from India", before joking that she couldn't pronounce Mr Satyarthi's surname.
She said she and Mr Satyarthi had decided to invite Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif to the award ceremony in December in Oslo in a bid to improve relations between the two.
They will receive a medal and $1.4m (£860,000) pounds in prize money.
