Army spokesperson Gen. Asim Bajwa said, “The group involved in the attack on Yousafzai has been arrested.” He said 10 members of a faction called “Shura”, which the army says is part of the Pakistani Taliban (Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan or TTP), had been arrested in a joint operation with Pakistan’s army, police and intelligence services.

Malala was shot in the head by Taliban gunmen in October 2012 because of her campaign for girls’ education. They boarded her school bus in Pakistan’s north-western Swat valley and opened fire, in an assault that also wounded two of her school friends. She has since recovered from the attack.
