Nobel Peace Prize laureate Malala gets married

Nobel Peace Prize winner and women's education advocate Malala Yousafzai has gotten married in Britain.

Malala posted a message on Twitter on Tuesday. It said, "Asser and I tied the knot to be partners for life. We are excited to walk together for the journey ahead."

Foreign media outlets have reported that her husband is Asser Malik. He is a senior official in a Pakistani cricket organization.

The couple wed in an Islamic ceremony at Malala's home in Birmingham. Family members were reportedly in attendance. Photos show Malala in a pink bridal costume.

Malala was shot in the head by Muslim extremists in her native Pakistan when she was 15 years old. She was targeted because she publicly expressed the view that girls should have the right to go to school.

She later relocated to Britain with her family. The advocate won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014.

Malala currently uses a fund she set up to help women in various countries receive an education.

Congratulations are pouring in from around the world. Swedish environmental activist Greta Thunberg retweeted Malala's message.
