Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai has asked countries around world to open their borders to Afghan refugees. Malala is worried about safety of millions of Afghans after Taliban took over Afghanistan on August 15th. Malala is activist for human rights and comes from Pakistan. She was shot in head by Taliban gunman in 2012 because she supported education for girls. She was 15 years old at that time and was on bus on her way to school. She is now worried that girls in Afghanistan will not receive proper education. She is also concerned that women in Afghanistan will not have freedom they have had for the past twenty years.
Ms Yousafzai became youngest ever Nobel Peace Prize winner in 2014 at age of 17. She has since continued campaigning for education of women and children. She spoke to BBC about the situation in Afghanistan. She called recent events "shocking" and said there is now "urgent humanitarian crisis". She said: "We are living in world where we're talking about advancements, about equality, about gender equality. We cannot see country going decades and centuries back." She added: "We have to take some bold [actions] for protection of women and girls, for protection of minority groups and for peace and stability in that region."
