Teenager Malala Yousafzai was at school in the city of Birmingham in central England when she was told she had won the Nobel Peace Prize on Friday, a spokeswoman said.

"Malala is at school as normal today," she said, adding that the 17-year-old would hold a press conference later on Friday.

Malala attends Edgbaston High School, a private school in an upmarket part of Birmingham.

After being shot by the Taliban in October 2012, Malala was treated at a hospital in Birmingham.

She started at her school in the city in March last year.
