LONDON — A 15-year-old Pakistani girl shot in the head by the Taliban for promoting girls’ education has been released from a Birmingham hospital to live with her family, doctors said Friday.

Photographs released by the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham showed Malala Yousufzai hugging nurses, waving and smiling shyly.

Malala will live with her parents and two brothers in the UK while she continues to receive treatment, but will be admitted again in the next month for another round of surgery to rebuild her skull.

1. She should have been Person of the Year

Her courage in the face of the taliban was quite inspiring and my fervent hope is she gets that education she so craves.

2. Is her family secure in the U.K.?

I'd guess the Taliban has a price on her head, and the family would be bonus collateral damage.
