Malala returns to London as four-day Pakistan trip comes to end

Malala and two other girls were seriously injured in an attempt on her life in 2012 and, after being flown to the United Kingdom for treatment, Malala has not seen her home country since. Considering the events of the last time Malala was at home, the heightened security on her trip makes details about her time there scarce.

After visiting Mingora on Saturday, she tweeted that it was "the most handsome place on earth" for her.

Over the course of the four-day trip, Malala met with the Prime Minister of Pakistan, Shahid Abbasi, and visited her home in the Swat Valley region.

Yousafzai, who is now studying at Oxford University, visited the PM House and her hometown Swat during the visit.

And it declared November 10 Malala Day - a day of action to focus on " Malala and the 32 million girls like Malala not at school". Malala has been visiting Pakistan since Thursday, her first trip home since she was shot and airlifted overseas for treatment.

The brief trip by the 20-year-old Nobel laureate is a highly symbolic moment for Pakistan, which regularly touts Swat as a success story in its long battle with extremism as it defends itself against accusations by the US and others that its northwest remains a safe haven for militancy.

"My first visit to Swat valley after five and a half years since the attack", she wrote in her school's guestbook, according to CNN, "I have felt so happy".

She said her dream to return to Pakistan has been fulfilled due to the efforts by government and armed forces to defeat terrorism. She also visited her family home and met her school friends and relatives.

"I am unable to believe I am back in Swat and meeting my own people", her father Ziauddin Yousafzai said, in comments echoed by her mother Toor Pekai.
