A vigil has been held for 14-year-old Pakistan schoolgirl Malala Yousafzai who is hospital in Birmingham after being shot in the head by the Taliban.

The vigil was staged outside Birmingham City Council House by Amina Women's Group and Women2Gether.

A spokesperson from the women's group said: "Women's life and freedom have become part of the battle zone.

"Girls like Malala live in fear every single day, afraid of the Taliban and of the American drone attacks, but no-one hears their cries."
