FILE - In this July 12, 2013 file photo provided by the United Nations Foundation, Malala Yousafzai celebrates her 16th birthday by addressing hundreds of young leaders who support the United Nation’s Secretary General's Global Education First Initiative, during 'Malala Day' at United Nations Headquarters. Adnan Rasheed, a prominent Pakistani Taliban commander, has written a letter to Malala, a teenage girl shot in the head by the group, expressing regrets that he didn't warn her before the assassination attempt that propelled her activism to the international stage. Rasheed said the letter received by The Associated Press late Tuesday night, July 16, 2013 expressed his own opinion, not that of the militant group.
