The Pakistani Taliban hit out at teenage education activist Malala Yousafzai over her Nobel peace prize, slamming her as a "soldier against Islamic society".

Malala became a global icon after she was shot and nearly killed by the Taliban in October 2012 for insisting that girls had a right to an education.

The 17-year-old vowed to continue her struggle for every child's right to go to school when she collected her Nobel at a ceremony in Oslo on Wednesday.

She is the youngest ever Nobel peace laureate, and the first Pakistani to claim the prize, but some in her home country condemn her as a Western agent - including the militants who shot her.
