Malala Yousafzai, schoolgirl shot by Taliban, now in UK


The Pakistani teenager who was shot in the head by the Taliban because she supported education for girls has arrived in Britain for specialist medical treatment.

Malala Yousafzai was attacked as she returned home from school in Mingora, north-western Swat, in early October.

She is now being treated at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham.
