BIRMINGHAM: Almost two weeks after Taliban shooting victim Malala Yousufzai was flown to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham via a special air ambulance, her doctors say she has shown good progress.

Malala, who was shot in the head by the Taliban in her native Swat on October 9, was flown to the UK on October 15 for medical care and treatment.

An update on the Birmingham hospital’s website on Sunday read that "the medical team caring for Malala say they are pleased with her progress." The update added that she is being looked after by staff from the Queen Elizabeth and Birmingham Children’s hospitals and remains in a stable condition.

Radio Pakistan reported on Sunday that Aseefa Bhutto Zardari spent Eid with Malala's family in Birmingham accompanied by the Pakistan High Commissioner to UK Wajid Shamsul Hassan.

While strongly condemning the attack on her‚ Aseefa said that the whole Pakistan is standing with Malala who has now become a national symbol of peace‚ enlightenment and women empowerment.

She also conveyed the full support of President Zardari to the family.

During meeting‚ senior officials of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital were present while Medical Director Dr Dave Rosser briefed Aseefa about Malala's health status.
