Malala, 15 year old girl, was targeted by gunmen who boarded her school bus after campaigning for better education for girls and criticising the militant group.
She was flown to Britain earlier this week to receive specialist care at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham, where she is under the care of medics with expertise in treating battlefield casualties evacuated from Afghanistan.
The attack on Malala has united Pakistan in a wave of condemnation, with hundreds of vigils and demonstrations held as people pray for her recovery.

Today, a vigil is being held in Birmingham, the city where she is being treated, outside the council house in Victoria Square between 11am and 1pm.
Almost 1500 people from around the world have posted messages of support for Malala on the University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust website.
