Pakistani girl shot by Taliban visits children in camp

Malala Yousafzai was shot by a Taliban gunman when she was traveling home from school in 2012 after she publicly denounced the Taliban.

Now, she's a global advocate for girls' education.

On Tuesday, she toured a refugee camp in Jordan and visited with Syrian girls forced to flee that country's civil war.

"Now I have seen the fact and I think that it is my responsibility and our responsibility to go and tell the world what is happening here and to tell them to help these children," Yousafzai said.

Yousafzai said her organization, the Malala Fund, would start a school in the camp to help provide education for girls.
