MINGORA, Paistan, March 31 (Reuters) – Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai visited her hometown in Pakistan’s Swat Valley for the first time since she was shot by a Taliban gunman as a teenager, two security officials and a family friend said on Saturday.

 

Roads leading to the 20-year-old education activist’s home in Mingora were blocked off early on Saturday.

 

Yousafzai has been visiting Pakistan since Thursday, her first trip home since she was shot and airlifted abroad for treatment.
