Islamabad - Arab Today

Malala Yousafzai (R) with school friends at the University of Edinburgh Campaigning Pakistani schoolgirl Malala Yousafzai was reunited on Saturday with two friends who were injured in the Taliban attempt to kill her. Kainat Riaz and Shazia Ramzan met Malala during an event at Edinburgh University in Scotland, the first time they have seen her since the attack.
A Taliban gunman boarded the girls\' school bus in Pakistan\'s northwestern Swat Valley in October 2012 and opened fire at Malala to punish her for championing girls\' rights to education.
Malala, now 16, was shot in the head while Kainat and Shazia were both wounded in the crossfire.
All three girls are now living and studying in Britain. Malala received medical treatment for her injuries at a British hospital.
They were the guests of honour at the launch on Saturday of the Global Citizenship Commission, a body of leaders representing politics, religious institutions, law and philanthropy
\"After I was shot the terrorists thought that I would not continue the struggle for education, but not only did I not stop my campaign but now Kainat and Shazia are with me and they are also supporting me,\" Malala told the event.
\"They are not afraid, we are not afraid and now people are supporting us and that is the greatest courage, and that is the weapon that we have got, the unity and togetherness.\"
Malala was also presented with an honorary masters degree from the university by former British prime minister Gordon Brown, who has backed her campaign.
The event is the latest in a series to fete Malala\'s work.
She went to Buckingham Palace on Friday to meet Queen Elizabeth II and her husband Prince Philip, while last week she met US President Barack Obama.
Malala was among the favourites to win the Nobel Peace Prize this month, but she lost out to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.
