Malala Yousafzai returned to Pakistan in her first visit to her native country since she was shot in the head by a Taliban gunman for advocating education for girls in 2012, officials confirmed on Thursday.
Details of her itinerary have been kept secret in view of the sensitivity surrounding the visit, a government official said of the trip. The trip is expected to last four days and include a meeting with Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi.
Nobel peace laureate is accompanied by her parents.
The 20-year-old Yousafzai was escorted through Islamabad's Benazir Bhutto International Airport under tight security.
