Video: Pakistani school girl calls for education against extremism

Malala Yousafzai, shot by the Taliban at age 15 for attending school, celebrated her 16th birthday with a speech at the UN Youth Assembly. “Let us pick up our books and our pens,” she said. “They are our most powerful weapons. One teacher, one book, one pen, can change the world.” This video is a short report from the UN and not the entire speech. Credit: YouTube/United Nations
