APTOPIX Pakistan Malalas Friends
In this Nov. 15, 2012 photo, a young girl reaches out to greet a Pakistani policeman securing the road outside Kainat Riaz's home in Mingora, Swat Valley, Pakistan. Security stepped up after Kainat was wounded by the same Taliban gunman who shot Malala Yousufzai and 13-year-old Shazia Ramazan on Oct. 8 on their way home from school. Malala was shot for her outspoken insistence on girls' education. Shazia and Kainat are to return to school this week for the first time since the shooting. (AP Photo/Anja Niedringhaus)
