Nobel Peace Prize Eludes Malala Yousafzai
The buzz over the Nobel Peace Prize was less about who won and more about who didn't win. INSIDE EDITION reports.
There's world-wide shock that this courageous teenager was not awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
"How did she not win?" asks an editorial in the New York Daily News.
Sixteen-year-old Malala Yousafzai is the youngest person ever nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. She was considered the odds-on favorite to join the prestigious list of winners that includes President Obama.
The peace prize was awarded instead to the organization destroying chemical weapons in Syria.
Exactly one year ago, Malala was shot in the head by the Taliban because she dared to campaign for the right of girls to attend school in Pakistan.
Her autobiography, I Am Malala, was released this week and she promoted the book on The Daily Show.
A spokesman for the fanatical Taliban says they are "delighted" Malala didn't win. The rest of the world may not agree.
