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.
