Malala Yousafzai: Haven't Done Enough to Deserve Nobel Peace Prize

Malala Yousafzai, the teenage activist nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, says she has not done enough to deserve the award, as her old school closed Wednesday to mark the first anniversary of her shooting by the Taliban. 

The 16-year-old was shot in the head by the Pakistani Taliban on October 9 last year for speaking out against them. She has gone on to become a global ambassador for the right of all children to go to school.

    That's a typo. She said, "I haven't droned enough to deserve a Nobel Peace Prize."
