Malala Yousafzai: Pakistan girl 'standing with help'


The Pakistani girl shot by the Taliban has managed to stand for the first time since the shooting, say UK doctors who are treating her.

Dr David Rosser said she was also able to communicate by writing notes, but added that there were still some concerns about her smooth recovery.

Malala Yousafzai was shot in the head by a Taliban gunman because she campaigned for girls' education.

She was flown to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham on Monday night.
