Campaigner Malala Yousafzai has reportedly gone back to Pakistan for the first time since she was shot in the head fighting for education for girls.
Malala was the victim of an assassination attempt by the Taliban in 2012 while riding the bus to school.
She had been targeted for her efforts to promote education for girls in Pakistan – including writing a blog about her life under Taliban occupation for the BBC when she was just 11-years-old.
Reports in local media suggest the 20-year-old arrived at Islamabads international airport in the early hours of this morning.
Pakistani television channel Geo TV aired footage claiming to show Malala – now an Oxford University student – leaving Benazir Bhutto International Airport and getting into a car escorted by a security convoy.
It is reported that she will meet with Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi during her stay.
Malala was just 15 when she was targeted by the terrorist group for her fearless campaigning.
She was flown to England in the days following the attack, and treated at Birminghams Queen Elizabeth Hospital.
Fearing reprisals in her native country, her and her family decided to make the city their home.
In 2014 she became the youngest person to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
Her campaign for childrens rights to education across the world has seen her address the United Nations on the issue.
It has not been confirmed if she will visit her familys hometown of Swat in the countrys rural north-west during her visit.
People on Twitter wholeheartedly welcomed the return of the activist after news of her overnight homecoming broke.
