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

Malala was flown to Britain for treatment after the Pakistani Taliban tried to kill her in October 2012, and now lives here with her family. Malala became a global icon after the Taliban attack in 2012.
