Democracy Now: Doctor: Pakistani Teenage Activist Malala Yousafzai Able to Stand, Write in Hospital Stay


Doctors for the Pakistani teenage activist Malala Yousafzai say she has been able to stand and write for the first time since being shot and seriously wounded earlier this month. The 15-year-old Yousafzai is undergoing medical treatment in Britain after militants shot her for publicly campaigning for girls’ education. Yousafzai’s British doctor said she is showing slow improvement by the day.

Dr. Dave Rosser: “She’s not out of the woods yet. Having said that, she’s doing very well. In fact, she was standing, with some help, for the first time this morning when I went in to see her. She’s communicating very freely. She’s writing. She has a tracheotomy tube in, because her airway was swollen by the passing of the bullet.”
