One year after a Taliban bullet tried to silence Malala Yousufzai's demand for girls' education, she has published a book and is a contender for the Nobel Peace Prize. But the militants threaten to kill her should she dare return home to Pakistan, and the principal at her old school says that as Malala's fame has grown, so has fear in her classrooms.
LONDON (AP) - A painting of Pakistani education activist Malala Yousafzai is going on display alongside British luminaries at the National Portrait Gallery in London.
The portrait by artist Jonathan Yeo shows the teenager doing her homework. It was painted months after Yousafzai, then 15, was shot by the Taliban as she traveled to school in northwest Pakistan in October 2012.
She was treated in England, where she still lives.
Yeo said he had tried to capture a sense of "power and wisdom yet vulnerability and youth" in the portrait.
Starting Wednesday, it will hang among Yeo's portraits of celebrities including artist Damien Hirst and actor Kevin Spacey at the gallery.
Once the exhibition ends in January, the painting will be sold to aid the Malala Fund, which campaigns for girls' education.
