Malala Yousufzai, the 14-year-old Pakistani girl who was critically wounded by the Taliban for promoting education for girls, was traveling to the U.K. for more medical treatment, Pakistan military officials said Monday.
Earlier, she was treated by a medical team from the United Arab Emirates, who recommended that she be moved to a U.K. hospital that “has the capability to provide integrated care for children who have sustained severe injury,” according to a statement issued by the Pakistani military on Monday.
Malala was leaving school last week when she was shot in the head and neck by the Taliban after she spoke out against the rebels and promoted education for girls.
On Sunday, tens of thousands rallied in Karachi, Pakistan’s largest city, in support of her.Article Source
