London: The 16-year-old Pakistani activist Malala Yousafzai will be honoured with the Anne Frank Award for moral courage at a ceremony in London on Thursday.

Malala came to public attention in 2012 , when she was shot in the head by a Taliban gunman while on her way to school. She was targeted because of her campaign for girls' education.

The award will be presented by the actress Naomie Harris.

 Malala will not be able to attend the event as she is presently studying for her A-levels.

Her father, Ziauddin Yousafzai, a UN adviser on education, will accept the award on her behalf.
