Malala Yusafzai: Girl activist safe in UK, father says

Help

The father of Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani schoolgirl activist shot by the Taliban, has said his daughter is safe in the UK.

Ziauddin Yousafzai was speaking after visiting his daughter for the first time at a Birmingham hospital.

She was transferred because of the need for a safe environment to recover from the gun attack which left a bullet lodged in her neck.

Jeremy Cooke reports from Birmingham.
