A Pakistani schoolgirl who was shot in the head by the Taliban is in stable condition after undergoing two successful operations to reconstruct her skull and restore her hearing, the British hospital treating her said Sunday.
The father of a 15-year-old Pakistani girl shot in the head by the Taliban described his daughter's survival and ongoing recovery as miraculous Friday, and said her shooting was a turning point for Pakistan.
She was able to stand, write and return home, and doctors said they have seen minimum signs of brain damage.
"She is recovering at an encouraging speed and we are very happy," he told reporters in Birmingham.
