Malala's father says she will 'rise again'

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

Ziauddin Yousafzai said his daughter would "rise again" to pursue her dreams.

He said he had cried when he saw for the first time Malala standing at the hospital in Birmingham.

Malala was attacked after she wrote about the need to improve the education of girls in Pakistan.

She is now recovering at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham.
