PRESS TRUST OF INDIA
London, Jan 4: Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani teenage activist, who was shot in the head by Taliban for advocating girls' education, has been temporarily discharged from a British hospital after she made "excellent progress in her recovery," doctors treating her said today.
15-year-old Malala would continue her rehabilitation at her family's temporary English home before undergoing major reconstructive surgery in a few weeks, the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham said.
Malala was shot in Pakistan's conservative Swat Valley on October 9 and air-lifted to the QEHB on October 15 for further specialist treatment. She received bullet wounds just above her left eye.
"Malala Yousufzai was discharged from Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham as an inpatient yesterday to continue her rehabilitation at her family's temporary home in the West Midlands," the hospital said in a statement.
She is still due to be re-admitted in late January or early February to undergo cranial reconstructive surgery as part of her long-term recovery and in the meantime she will visit the hospital regularly to attend clinical appointments.
Malala's father Ziauddin has been appointed as education attache in Pakistan consulate in Birmingham for three years, with the option of an extension for a further two years afterwards.
