Malala Yousufzai, the 14-year-old Pakistani who was targeted and shot by the Taliban for speaking publicly about her right to education, is being flown to Britain for specialized care. When Malala was shot by Taliban gunmen on her schoolbus last Tuesday, she quickly became an icon of inspiration for her bold stand for human rights. Ever since, the world has waited, hoped and prayed for her full recovery from the gunshot wounds. And now that she is en route to specialized rehabilitation, doctors are hopeful about her condition.
Gunmen from the Pakistani Taliban fired grenade launchers and AK-47’s at a school bus on Tuesday, killing the driver, four children and injuring 18 others.
