Pakistani girl shot by Taliban "doing well"

A portrait of 14-year-old Pakistani girl, Malala Yousufzai, is displayed during a candlelight vigil by a women's group in Hong Kong October 19, 2012. Yousufzai, who was shot in the head by Taliban gunmen, is "not out of the woods" but is doing well and has been able to stand for the first time with some help, doctors at the British hospital treating her said on Friday. Yousufzai was flown from Pakistan to Birmingham to receive treatment after the attack earlier this month, which drew widespread international condemnation. REUTERS/Bobby Yip
