Malala Yousafzai: Taliban Shooting Victim Flown to UK
The 14-year-old Pakistani girl shot in the head by Taliban gunmen is being flown to the UK for medical treatment.
Malala Yousafzai has until now been at a military hospital in Rawalpindi, with doctors saying her progress over the next few days would be “critical”.
She remains in a serious condition after the attack, which the Taliban said they had carried out because she had been “promoting secularism”.
Pakistan’s interior minister has said the attack was planned abroad.
Those involved would soon be caught, said Rehman Malik, without giving further details.
Malala left Pakistan on board an air ambulance provided by the United Arab Emirates, accompanied by a full medical team.
Details of her departure were not announced until she had already left the country because of security concerns.
The plane spent several hours in Abu Dhabi before flying on to the UK. It was not immediately clear whether any of her family were travelling with her.
