Pakistani activist for female education and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Malala Yousafzai listens to speakers at an event to commemorate the Peshawar school massacre in Birmingham, north England on 14 December 2015

Malala Yousafzai has condemned a call by US presidential hopeful Donald Trump to ban Muslims from entering the US.

The Nobel Prize winner said his comments were “full of hatred” and blaming Muslims for terrorism would only “radicalise more terrorists”.

She was speaking at an event to mark one year since a Taliban attack on a school in Peshawar, Pakistan left more than 150 dead, most of them children.

In 2012, Malala was herself shot in the head by the Taliban.

Schools and colleges across Pakistan are closed on Wednesday to mark the one-year anniversary.

Pakistan’s president, prime minister and army chief joined survivors and grieving families at a commemoration ceremony at the Army Public School, where the massacre happened.
