Malala Yousafzai: Taliban shooting victim travels to UK

The Pakistani girl shot in the head by Taliban gunmen last week is being sent to the UK for medical treatment, the Pakistani army has said.

Malala Yousafzai, 14, has until now been at a military hospital in Rawalpindi, with doctors saying her progress over the next few days would be "critical". The army said on Monday that she needed "prolonged medical care".

Malala wrote a diary about suffering under the Taliban and was accused by them of "promoting secularism".

The BBC's Aleem Maqbool says the case has "horrified" people across the country.
