The Pakistani schoolgirl who was shot by Taliban gunmen for pushing for girls to be educated has been sent to the United Kingdom for medical treatment, a military spokesman said on Monday.
The spokesman said in a statement that 14-year-old Malala Yusufzai, whose shooting has drawn condemnation abroad and at home, will require prolonged care to fully recover physically and psychologically.
Taliban extremist militants who are active in the northwest of Pakistan have made an attempt on the life of a prominent human rights activist, specifically women’s and children’s rights activist, a 14-year old eighth-grade Pakistani school student from the town of Mingora, Malala Yousafzai.
The terrorists fired at a school bus with Malala and her classmates in Mingora on Tuesday night. Several bullets hit Malala’s head. The attackers escaped. According to the doctors, Malala’s condition is very grave. The surgeons have extracted five bullets from the girl’s head, but she is still in a coma.
President Asif Zardari of Pakistan has ordered the girl to be sent to one of the best foreign clinics by a special flight.
The attempt on her life has caused a major stir in Pakistan. Her name was first mentioned in the world a year ago when her diary was published in the West. She recounted in the diary the way Taliban militants banned her and other children from going to school.
Pakistani police have arrested 200 suspects of masterminding a murder attempt of 14-year-old Pakistani girl Malala Yousafzai.
Later, 165 of them were released.
Schoolgirl was shot in the head and neck by Taliban insurgents because of her online diary about girls' education and life in Swat Valley in northwestern Pakistan, controlled by Islamists who oppose schools for girls.
