Islamabad, Pakistan - On Wednesday, hundreds of people gathered with signs to condemn the Pakistani Taliban who took responsibility for attempting to kill a teenager advocating for children rights. Malala Yousufzai, 14, suffered several gunshot wounds to the head and neck on Tuesday. Yousufzai gained popularity for blogging and speaking against the Taliban atrocities.
Doctors confirmed that Yousufzai is expected to survive after she was shot. Her shooting incident drew major protests against the Taliban shooting to keep Yousufzai from speaking and condemning the atrocities they commit against children and people.
The Pakistani government has offered 10 million rupees ($105,000 U.S.) reward for those members of the Taliban responsible for Yousufzai's shooting.
