Pakistani Girl Shot By Taliban Sent To UK

The 14-year-old girl shot by the Taliban last week will now receive specialized medical care in the United Kingdom.

FOX News Radio’s Simon Owen reports from London:

Audio clip:

Malala Yousufzai was shot in the head coming home from school. Her crime? She’d been promoting education for girls and criticizing the Taliban. She had emergency treatment in Pakistan. British Foreign Secretary William Hague says she’ll receive long-term care here in the UK.

(Hague) “We offered our help to the government of Pakistan because she does need particular specialist care.”

There were large rallies in support of Malala in Pakistan over the weekend. Two gunmen are still at large and the Taliban is threatening to kill her father.
