Pakistani police arrested several suspects today for the shooting of 14-year-old child rights activist Malala Yousufzai in Mingora.
They wouldn't say exactly how many so as not to endanger the ongoing probe.
Malala, who had campaigned for girls' right to education and blogged about life under the Taliban for the BBC, was shot alongside two classmates on Tuesday on her way home from school.
She is recovering in a military hospital in Rawalpindi.
The Taliban have claimed responsibility, arguing that Malala was promoting "Western thinking" and that "the obscenity had to end."
Spokesman Sirajuddin Ahmad said her family had been warned three times over her activism before "the decision was taken to execute her."
