Pakistani police say they have arrested a number of suspects in the case of a 14-year-old girl shot and wounded by the Taliban after promoting girls' education and speaking out about Taliban atrocities.
A senior police official in Mingora, Afzal Khan Afridi, said today that police made arrests in the shooting of Malala Yousufzai.
He declined to give any details about their number, what role they're suspected in having in the shooting on Tuesday or how police apprehended them.
Yousufzai and two other girls were shot Tuesday in a school bus on their way home from school. The young activist is being treated at a hospital in Rawalpindi.
