Associated Press and AFP reported yesterday that the Pakistan Army has captured men suspected of the shooting of the campaigner for girls' education, Malala Yousafzai.

Malala, now living and studying here in Birmingham, continues to campaign for the education of girls. As my late mother was fond of saying, educate the girls and you educate their children.

I'm not sure if it's enough to capture her shooters.  Practically the whole Islamist organization they represent deserves punishment really.

God bless and strengthen Malala.  We need more Muslims like her.

I don't envy those in the custody of the Pakistan Army, given a General of theirs has made something of their capture.

Some commentators in Pakistan have made the point that without her in the country, the campaign for girls' education lacks the punch it might otherwise have. For me, she has done enough and more, paying the price for her courage. There she would be a target, especially in her home of the Swat Valley. But the Jihadists have a long reach throughout Pakistan and Pakistani occupied Kashmir.
