Terrorist Commander Adnan Rasheed Writes to Pakistani Girl Shot by Taliban
by News Editor
Daily Mail – A Taliban commander has written to teenage schoolgirl Malala Yousafzai explaining why she was shot in the head by the group – but also expressing regret that it ever happened. In faltering English, wanted terrorist Adnan Rasheed said he was shocked to hear of the assassination attempt last October.
Malala, then 15, was gravely wounded by masked gunmen who singled her out as she returned home in a school bus in Pakistan’s north-west Swat Valley. But the letter from Rasheed, who was freed in a mass jail break last year after he was arrested over a plot to murder Pakistan’s former president, falls short of offering a full apology.
