Nobel laureate and UN Messenger of Peace Malala Yousafzai is urging world leaders to support the right of every child to go to school.

Malala made the call while visiting a camp for Iraqis displaced by the battle to free the northern city of Mosul which had been under the control of the terrorist group ISIL since 2014.
