Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani teenage activist, who was shot in the head by Taliban for advocating girls' education, has been discharged from a British hospital treating her, the hospital said today.
Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham, said 15-year-old Malala would continue her rehabilitation at her family's temporary English home before undergoing major reconstructive surgery in a few weeks.
Malala was shot in Pakistan's conservative Swat Valley on October 9 and air-dashed to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital on October 15 for further specialist treatment. She received bullet wounds just above her left eye.
