LONDON (Web Desk) – Nobel Peace Prize winner and education campaigner Malala Yousafzai has been given two 24-hour armed guards after she was made a key target by terrorists, Daily Mail reported.

According to the report, police have reportedly increased Malala’s security to that usually given to ministers and visiting political VIPs after spy chiefs warned of a raised threat to her life.

A source told the Sun: ‘Her life’s been at risk since that failed murder attempt. But threats have grown significantly as her profile has become bigger.

‘Being a Nobel winner and female education campaigner means she is seen as a global ambassador. Her elite police protection reflects this.’

Scotland Yard said it would not comment on matters of security or close protection.

On Thursday, she showed she is as intelligent as she is courageous – scoring a string of A*s and As in her GCSEs. A message from her proud father Ziauddin Yousafzai on Twitter revealed his daughter’s grades.
