DERA ISMAIL KHAN - A 14-year-old Pakistani schoolgirl campaigner shot by the Taliban had defied threats for years, believing the good work she was doing for her community was her best protection, her father said on Wednesday.




Malala Yousufzai was shot and seriously wounded on Tuesday as she was leaving her school in her hometown in the Swat valley, northwest of the capital, Islamabad.




The Taliban claimed responsibility saying her promotion of education for girls was pro-Western and she had opposed them.
