Gordon Brown: Today is a 'great day' for Malala

UN Special Envoy for Global Education Gordon Brown said today is a "great day" for Malala Yousafzai.

Mr Brown said in a statement:

This is a great day for Malala, for her family - and for the cause of education worldwide.

By her courage, Malala shows that nothing - not even bullets, intimidation or death threats - can stand in the way of the right of every girl to an education.

I wish Malala and her family well as her courageous recovery continues.
