Ten militants suspected of shooting teenage education campaigner Malala Yousafzai have been arrested, Pakistan's army says.

Nearly two years ago she was attacked on a school bus by the Taliban, an extreme Islamist terrorist group.

They didn't like the fact she was campaigning for education for girls in Pakistan.

Malala was seriously injured in the attack but was flown to the UK for treatment and has now recovered well.

She has continued to speak out for women's rights and is now arguably the most famous schoolgirl in the world.

Since the attack, Malala has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize and has just released an autobiography.

Now she is releasing a book about her extraordinary life and it's written especially for young people.
