World cheers Malala, but Pakistani classmates fearful

Pakistani children peek out of a bus as they leave school in Wajah Khiel, Swat Valley, Pakistan. One year after a Taliban bullet tried to silence Malala Yousufzai's demand for education, she has published a book and is a contender for the Nobel Peace Prize. But still the militants threaten to kill her should she dare return home to Pakistan, and the principal at her old school says that as Malala's fame has grown, so has fear in her classrooms.
