Pakistani Girl Shot by Taliban Leaves Hospital

Malala Yusufzai

Pakistani teenager Malala Yusufzai has been discharged from Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham.

She is the fifteen year old girl who was shot by the Taliban on her way to school because she was campaigning for the education of girls in Pakistan. She has been an advocate for educating girls since she was 11.

The Taliban has vowed to kill her. This is the real war on women.

Malala was flown to the UK after doctors in Pakistan removed the bullet. She will continue to receive therapy and in a month she will have cranial reconstructive surgery.

Doctors felt she would do better receiving outpatient services while spending more time with her family as opposed to remaining in the hospital.

Her father has been appointed as education attache in the UK for three years and the family will likely stay in the UK for now.

Malala said she will eventually return to Pakistan.

Malala is a profile in courage.
