Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai — who survived a Taliban attack — said Tuesday she is "heartbroken" by the slaughter of more than 130 children at a school in Pakistan and called on the world to unite against terrorism. In a video address, the 17-year-old girl-power and education activist said she stands with "all those families and all those children who are injured right now and are suffering."

"My family and I heartbroken," she said. "We should stand up together and fight against terrorism and we should make sure every child gets safe and quality education."
