Girl Shot by Taliban Completes Two Surgeries in UK

Sunday, 03 February 2013 09:35 AM EST

LONDON — The British hospital treating a Pakistani girl shot in the head by the Taliban says she has undergone two successful operations and is making good progress in her recovery.

Birmingham's Queen Elizabeth Hospital says that 15-year-old Malala Yousufzai had skull reconstruction and a cochlear implant surgery to restore her hearing on Saturday. The two operations lasted a total of five hours, and doctors are said to be "very pleased" with her progress.

Malala was shot on Oct. 9 on the way home from school by Taliban angered at her objection to the group's interpretation of Islam, which limits girls' access to education.

The hospital said Sunday she was awake and talking to hospital and her family members.

Her story and her remarkable recovery have captured global attention.
