Malala Yousafzai making a ‘decent’ recovery says British doctors, she is ‘strong’

The medical director of the UK hospital where Pakistani girl Malala Yousafzai is being treated has said doctors are “impressed with her strength and resilience”.

Dr David Rosser said she was making good progress, but has a long way to go and is not out of the woods yet.

The teen, age 14, was shot by Taliban, targeted for being a vocal advocate against the Islamic opppresion and the needs for girls’ education. Pakistan’s president described it as an attack on “civilized people”.

She was flown to the Queen Elizabeth hospital in Birmingham to be treated for her wounds. Doctors there say she will make a “decent recovery” but her treatment and rehabilitation could take months.

The Taliban have threatened to target Malala again and she was given tight security for her journey to the UK.

Dr Rosser said the team of specialists working with her have been pleased with the teenager’s progress.

“There’s a long way to go and she is not out of the woods yet… but at this stage we’re optimistic that things are going in the right direction,” he added.

Once Malala recovers sufficiently, it is thought she will need neurological help as well as treatment to repair or replace damaged bones in her skull.
