Taliban schoolgirl victim will 'adjust to having freedom'

Malala Yousafsai, the 15-year-old Pakistani schoolgirl shot in the head by the Taliban, was discharged from hospital in Birmingham on Thursday.

She was flown here for specialist treatment after she was targeted by a gunman for campaigning for better education for girls.

Malala and her family are now set to remain in the UK as her father Ziauddin Yousafzai has been appointed as Pakistan's education attache at the Consulate in Birmingham.

The family have been receiving death threats from the Taliban since Malala's attack.

The CEO of women's charity The Derby Women's Centre gives an insight into the adjustments Malala may have to make to live in the UK, one of which is 'getting used to' freedom.
