Thousands rally to condemn attack on Pakistani girl
Laud activist’s bravery, assail Taliban
Tens of thousands of Pakistanis rallied in Karachi on Sunday in the biggest show of support yet for a 14-year-old girl who was shot and seriously wounded by the Taliban for promoting girls’ education and criticizing the militant group. The Oct. 9 attack on Malala Yousufzai as she was returning home from school in Pakistan’s northwest horrified people inside and outside the country. But it gave hope to some that the government would intensify its fight against the militants.
