Malala Yousafzai and Kailash Satyarthi receive their Nobel Peace Prizes

OSLO, Norway (AP) — Malala Yousafzai of Pakistan and Kailash Satyarthi of India received the Nobel Peace Prize on Wednesday for risking their lives to help protect children from slavery, extremism and forced labor. The 17-year-old Malala, the youngest ever Nobel winner, and Satyarthi, 60, collected the award at a ceremony in Oslo City Hall in the Norwegian capital to a standing ovation.
In his speech to an audience including Norwegian royalty and politicians, Nobel committee Chairman Thorbjorn Jagland said all children have a right to childhood and education, and "this world conscience can find no better expression" than through this year's winners.
