马拉拉和印度活动家获得诺奖,相关信息请看新闻报道!

a child rights campaigner and a child education activist will share the 2014 nobel peace prize.

the norwegian nobel committee announced the two winners on friday. they are malala yousafzai of pakistan and india's kailash satyarthi. the nobel committee said the prize was awarded for "their struggle against the suppression of children and young people, and for the right of all children to an education." it added that the committee considers it important "for a hindu and a muslim, an indian and a pakistani, to join in a common struggle for education and against extremism."

malala yousafzai becomes the youngest winner of the nobel peace prize. she is only 17 years old. she had been pushing for girls' education in pakistan for several years when taliban gunmen shot her in the head in 2012.

doctors in pakistan and later britain treated malala. she has since recovered and continues to fight for women's rights.

kailash satyarthi has been leading a peaceful movement to end abuse of children for financial gain. the nobel committee says he also has assisted in the development of important international agreements on children's rights.

the two winners will split the $1.1 million in prize money. nobel officials will present the award on december 10th in oslo, norway.
