Until today, protests against the Taliban shooting of 14-year-old Malala Yousufzai had not approached the scale of previous marches against blasphemy and US drones.

Investigators believe the soldier accused of killing 17 Afghan civilians split the slaughter into two episodes, returning to his base after the first attack and later slipping away to kill again.
