For the first time in almost six years, Malala Yousafzai has returned to her home country of Pakistan. The 20-year-old winner of the Nobel Peace Prize is known around the world as Malala.
She spent most of her life advocating for girls' rights to an education, but that's something that the Taliban, a terrorist group that operates in Afghanistan and Pakistan has tried to prevent. They attempted to assassinate Malala in 2012, but she survived the shooting. And afterwards, she continued her own education, as well as her fight for children's rights worldwide.
There was a lot of security when she visited Pakistan early Thursday. Some people there see her as a hero. Others see her as an agitator, who should be silenced. But here visit defied Taliban threats to attack her again and fulfill her dream of touching the ground of home.
There'd been a whirlwind of changes on and around the Korean peninsula, since the lines of communication between North and South Korea open back up before the Olympics. April 27th is the date when North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in are scheduled to meet at the militarized zone, the border between their nations.
It will be the first face to face between Korean leaders in more than a decade and it follows this week's surprise visit by North Korea's dictator to China. That's a nation whose relationship with North Korea has been significant if not always harmonious.
