Malala Yousufzai, the teen-aged Pakistani activist shot in the head by the Taliban for advocating girls’ education, remains in a stable condition, two weeks after she was admitted to a hospital in Britain, doctors said today.

In a statement, the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham said, “The medical team caring for Malala Yousufzai say they are pleased with her progress, almost two weeks after she arrived at the hospital. Malala is being looked after by staff from the Queen Elizabeth and Birmingham Children’s hospitals and remains in a stable condition.”

The 15-year-old’s mother, father and two brothers are in the city of Birmingham in central England.

Ziauddin Yousufzai, father of the school girl, has said she was “improving with encouraging speed“.

Malala had campaigned for the rights of girls to have an education and had written a diary for the BBC Urdu service when the Pakistan Taliban controlled Swat in 2009.

Yousufzai has said his daughter will return to Pakistan once she has recovered and that she was determined to continue her schooling.
