Pakistani Teen Activist on Way to Britain to Recover From Shooting by Taliban

14 Year Old Activist, Malala Yousufzai

The Pakistani schoolgirl activist shot in the head by the Taliban, is on her way to Britain for treatment as she struggles to overcome her injuries.

A panel of Pakistani doctors and international experts say that Malala will require prolonged care to fully recover from the physical and psychological effects of trauma that she has received.

She will be accompanied by her immediate family and an intensive care specialist on the specially equipped plane, which is being provided by the United Arab Emirates.

The decision to send her to Britain was based on the expectation that she will need to have the damaged bones in her skull repaired or replaced, as well as intensive neurological rehabilitation.
