Malala Yousafzai Wins Nobel Peace Prize
Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani teen who was attacked by Taliban militants for promoting education for girls, will share the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize with Kailash Satyarthi, an Indian campaigner against exploitation of children. Yousafzai, 17, defied the Taliban in her town of Mingora in Swat Valley, near the volatile western frontier dividing Pakistan and Afghanistan. In October 2012, Taliban militiamen boarded a school bus she was on, singled her out and shot her in the left side of the head. Yousafzai survived and in July 2013 addressed the United Nations, telling delegates that the Taliban “thought that bullets would silence us, but they failed. The terrorists thought that they would change my aims and stop my ambitions, but nothing changed in my life, except this: Weakness, fear and hopelessness died. Strength, power and courage was born.”

Minnesota Woman Steals Ambulance
A Minneapolis, Minnesota, woman has been charged after police said she stole an ambulance from a hospital in Illinois, drove it to Rantoul early Friday morning and used its siren to run vehicles off the road on Interstate 57. Samantha Sligar, 27, of Minneapolis, was charged with possession of a stolen vehicle. An ambulance crew was dropping off a patient at Northwest Community Hospital about 4 a.m. Friday and returned to find the ambulance gone. “Up to now 100 percent of the time it’s been where they where they left it,” said Arlington Heights Deputy Fire Chief Pete Ahlman.
