Malala Yousafzai, the youngest Nobel Prize laureate at 17, is an icon of bravery around the world. But the image of her crying after seeing the blood-spattered school uniform, which she was wearing when the Taliban shot her in 2012, has tugged at many heartstrings.

The Press Trust of India described the uniform as a blue tunic, white headscarf and white trousers, stained brown by dried blood, which is on display at an exhibition dedicated to Malala in Oslo, the capital of Norway, where she received the Nobel Prize for Peace along with 60-year-old Kailash Satyarthi from India.

Many were moved by the the image that captures Malala, a campaigner for education, being comforted by Satyarthi, a child rights activist, who hugged and kissed her on the head. You are so brave, you are so brave," he told her.
