Malala to have cranial reconstruction surgery in UK
London: Pakistani teenage woman education activist Malala Yousafzai will undergo reconstructive surgery in the next month in the UK.
Yousafzai, 15, is being treated at Birmingham`s Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEHB) after being attacked by the Pakistan Taliban in October this year.
According to the hospital`s trust, she will have cranial reconstruction surgery in late January or early February, the BBC reports.
Meanwhile, medical director Dr Dave Rosser said that ‘Malala has continued to make great progress in her treatment’.
The Taliban have said it shot Malala, a campaigner for girls` education, for "promoting secularism".
Doctors said the bullet grazed the teenager`s brain when it struck her just above her left eye in the incident in the Swat Valley.
