Malala Yousafzai, the 14-year-old Pakistani girl shot in the head by Taliban gunmen last Tuesday, has flown from a military hospital in Rawalpindi to the U.K. for medical treatment, say reports.

1. Lovely, brave girl.

Hope she has a speedy, full recovery and her family has peace in knowing she is far away now from her attempted murderers.
