Update: Pak teen Malala’s condition improves after operation

Peshawar: Young children’s rights leader Malala Yousafzai, who was shot by militants in Swat along with two other schoolgirls, is showing improvement, Geo News reported.

The News.com.pk said, “A board including expert surgeons will meet again on Friday to review her condition. The doctors said they are trying their best to save Malala’s life but also appealed for prayers.”

Malala is being treated at the Combined Military Hospital, Peshawar, and she has been there for over 48 hours. Family sources said that she was stable and improving although still unconcious.

On Thursday US President Barack Obama termed the life threatening attack on the Malala by the Taliban as reprehensible, disgusting and tragic, and has offered assistance to Pakistan, his spokesman said.

“I know that the President found the news reprehensible and disgusting and tragic. We strongly condemn the shooting of Malala Yousafzai,” Jay Carney, the White House Press Secretary, told reporters.

“Directing violence at children is barbaric, it’s cowardly and our hearts go out to her and the others who were wounded, as well as their families, he said.
