The Pakistani schoolgirl shot by the Taliban left her hospital on Monday, and was loaded onto a special air ambulance headed for the United Kingdom. Malala Yousufzai, a 14-year-old activist for girls education, was admitted to Birmingham's Queen Elizabeth Hospital. The unit that will treat Malala specializes in complex trauma cases, and has a history of caring for hundreds of soldiers wounded in Afghanistan. Pakistani surgeons removed a bullet from near Malala's spinal cord the day after the attack but she reportedly needs more intensive followup care. Just how much damage Malala has suffered is unclear. What is clear is that Malala will continue to be a target for Pakistan's Taliban. The group has said that if she makes a full recovery, they will attack her again.
