Malala Yousufzai, the 14-year-old Pakistani girl who gained international recognition as an advocate for education and was shot in the head by Taliban thugs last Tuesday (see my earlier post), has been transferred to a hospital in England to receive additional medical treatment not available in Pakistan.
She arrived today at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in the city of Birmingham in central England, which has extensive experience treating British soldiers wounded in Afghanistan.
Yesterday, tens of thousands of Pakistanis demonstrated against the attempted murder of Malala Yousufzai, as did others, many of them her fellow schoolgirls, in Aghanistan, India, and elsewhere. In the meantime, the Taliban has threatened to murder her father, a school headmaster.
