The 15-year-old schoolgirl was flown to the UK last week following a surgery in Pakistan during which a bullet lodged near her spine was removed. Malala along with two of her classmates was attacked in the restive Swat region of northwest Pakistan as they made their way home from school on 9 October.

The teenager was treated by neurosurgeons in a Pakistani military hospital. She was transferred to the UK by an air ambulance arranged by the United Arab Emirates.
