Birmingham's Queen Elizabeth Hospital has revealed details of the next phase of surgery for the Pakistani schoolgirl Malala Yousafzai.
The surgery will involve fitting a specially-moulded titanium plate to replace a missing section of her skull after she survived being shot a point blank range.
Surgeons will also be fitting a small electronic device to improve hearing in her left ear.
Speaking for the first time since her attack by the Taliban, schoolgirl Malala Yousafzai said she wants every child to be educated.
Doctors have said they plan to carry out two procedures to reinforce Malala Yousafzai's skull and to restore hearing to her left ear.
