Malala Yousafzai spoke publicly for the first time since being attacked by the Taliban last October to thank her many supporters across the world for their good wishes.
In a message recorded before her most recent operation on Saturday, she said she will continue her work fighting for the education rights of girls. She said:
"Today you can see that I am alive. I can speak, I can see you, I can see everyone and…I am getting better day by day. It’s just because of the prayers of people."
