BIRMINGHAM, England (AP) - A Pakistani teen shot in the head by the Taliban for promoting girls' education and criticizing militants has arrived in Britain, where she is to get specialized care.
The attack on 14-year-old Malala Yousufzai a week ago horrified people across Pakistan and abroad.
Pakistan's military said doctors recommended Malala be shifted to a center in the U.K. that has the ability to provide "integrated" care to children with severe injuries.
Malala arrived in Britain on Monday afternoon.
She is to be taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham in central England, which is also home to the Royal Center for Defense Medicine. The Queen Elizabeth Hospital is designated as one of the country's 16 major trauma centers.
