Malala calls bomb plot survivor Hamid Mir to express solidarity
Islamabad, Nov. 27 (ANI): In her first telephone call from the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham, teenaged Pakistani activist Malala Yousufzai and her father called senior journalist and Geo News anchor Hamid Mir to express solidarity.
"Malala Yousafzai and her father just called me from UK and expressed their solidarity. Malala said that Insha Allah we will defeat terrorists," The News quoted Mir, as tweeting in micro-blogging website Twitter.
The Taliban had shot Malala, 15, on October 9 for speaking up against them and advocating girls' right to education. She survived the attack and is now recuperating in the UK.
Mir escaped an assassination attempt when police defused a bomb planted on the passenger side of his car in Islamabad on Monday morning.
The material included a battery, a 35 no. detonator and ball bearings.
Interior Minister Rehman Malik has announced a reward of Rs 50 million for credible information regarding the attempt on Mir's life. (ANI)
