Girl Shot by Taliban Reportedly Able to Stand

Malala Yousafzai, the 15-year-old Pakistani blogger who was shot in the head by the Taliban outside her school earlier this month, is making strides toward recovery, apparently able to stand and communicate after undergoing surgery and rehabilitation.  MSNBC reports:

Dr. Dave Rosser, medical director at the hospital, said that the girl was “well enough that she’s agreed that she’s happy, in fact keen, for us to share more clinical detail.”

Rosser said the infection was probably related to the track of a bullet which grazed her head when she was attacked. Because of the infection, Rosser said, “she is not out of the woods yet.”

Yousufzai began standing up to the Taliban when she was 11, when the Islamabad government had effectively ceded control of the Swat Valley, where she lives, to the militants.
