Pakistani teenage activist Malala wants to be prime minister, says Nobel would be 'great honour'
NEW YORK CITY (AFP) - Teenage rights activist Malala Yousafzai told an audience in New York that she would like to become prime minister of Pakistan to "save" the country.
In an interview with CNN's Christiane Amanpour on Thursday at a sold-out public event, she also said winning Friday's Nobel Peace Prize would be a "great honour."
Asked about her conflicting dreams of becoming a doctor or a politician, and whether she would like to become premier, Malala said she wanted to help her homeland.
"I want to become a prime minister of Pakistan," she told Amanpour to cheers from the audience.
