    The 14-year-old Pakistani girl shot in the head by Taliban gunmen last week is being flown to the UK for medical treatment.

    Malala Yousafzai was shot in the head by the Taliban as she wrote in her blog supporting education for girls, about the suffering under the Taliban. They stopped her bus packed with school girls and shot her in the head on her way home, and have warned that they will attack her again.

    Until now, she has been at a military hospital in Rawalpindi, but London had offered to help her in any way, so the evacuation has been arranged by the Pakistani authorities after an assessment by the medical team treating Malala.

    On her arrival in the UK Malala will be transferred to an NHS hospital where she will receive specialist medical care. The centre provides integrated care to children who have sustained severe injuries, as she will need treatment for the damaged bones in her skull and neurological treatment.

    The Foreign Secretary, William Hague, said:

    Last week’s barbaric attack on Malala Yousafzai and her school friends shocked Pakistan and the world. Malala’s bravery in standing up for the right of all young girls in Pakistan to an education is an example to us all.

    Malala will now receive specialist medical care in an NHS hospital. Our thoughts remain with Malala and her family at this difficult time.

    The public revulsion and condemnation of this cowardly attack shows that the people of Pakistan will not be beaten by terrorists.

    On Monday, former British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, who is now the UN’s Special Envoy for Global Education, said he was launching a petition in Malala’s name to support what Malala fought for.

    Today, sadly, 32 million girls are not going to school and it is time to fight harder for Malala’s dream to come true.
