Malala leaves hospital after skull surgery

A Pakistani schoolgirl shot in the head by the Taliban for advocating girls' education has been discharged from a British hospital after surgery on her skull.

The attack on Malala Yousufzai (15), pictured, was condemned worldwide and made her a symbol of resistance to the militant group's crackdown on women's rights.

She was flown from Pakistan to Britain for specialist treatment.

The Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham said she had made a good recovery and would continue her rehabilitation nearby at her family's temporary home.
