BIRMINGHAM, England - A hospital official in central England says a 14-year-old Pakistani girl who was shot by the Taliban has "a chance of making a good recovery."
Malala Yousufzai was flown to England today from Pakistan, where she had been shot in the head by the Taliban a week ago in retaliation for her activism promoting the education of girls.
The Taliban have threatened to target her again because she promoted "Western thinking."
The teen had been receiving treatment at a Pakistani military hospital. She's now being treated at a facility that has extensive experience treating British soldiers who were injured in battle.
Sources say Malala remains in a coma but has been moving her hands and feet.
Pakistani's military had said that a panel of doctors recommended she be sent to a facility in the U.K. that can provided "integrated" care.
The military said damaged bones in her skull will have to be repaired or replaced, and she will need "intensive" rehabilitation.
