Reporters Without Borders ‘outraged’ at Malala attack
PESHAWAR: International press freedom organisation, Reporters Without Borders, on Thursday joined worldwide condemnation of the Taliban attack on 14-year-old campaigner Malala Yousufzai in Mingora.
“Reporters Without Borders is outraged at this cowardly attack on such a young activist. The cruelty of the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) in targeting this young girl is absolutely disgusting,” the organisation said in a press statement issued in Paris. It said, “The attack shows once again that the Taliban will go to any lengths to silence their critics and intimidate the local population. We urge the Pakistani authorities to take all necessary steps to ensure the safety of Malala Yousufzai and other dissidents.”
