Malala Yousufzai released from hospital


The Pakistani girls’ education activist who was shot in the head by Taliban militants late last year, was released from hospital in the UK today. According to a statement from the hospital,

She is still due to be re-admitted in late January or early February to undergo cranial reconstructive surgery as part of her long-term recovery and in the meantime she will visit the hospital regularly to attend clinical appointments.

Dr Dave Rosser, Medical Director at University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust, said: “Malala is a strong young woman and has worked hard with the people caring for her to make excellent progress in her recovery.

Obviously, I wish her a full and speedy recovery, and cannot wait until she’s able to get back to work doing her crucial work on behalf of Pakistani girls and women.

    Minor point, but the Queen Elizabeth Hospital is in Birmingham, not London.
