Pakistani activist Malala Yousafzai has urged children to "stand up for their rights" after becoming the youngest person to win the Nobel Peace Prize.

She said she was "honoured" to receive the award, saying it made her feel "more powerful and courageous".

The 17-year-old was jointly awarded the prize with Kailash Satyarthi, an Indian child rights campaigner.

The teenager was shot in the head by Taliban gunmen in October 2012 for campaigning for girls' education.

She is the youngest ever recipient of the prize.
