    Malala Yousafzai, 14, who was shot in the head by Taliban insurgents targeting her, arrived on Monday at a British hospital, where doctors said she has every chance to make a “good recovery.” Pakistani surgeons removed a bullet from near her spinal cord during a three-hour operation last week the day after she was shot, but she now needs intensive follow-up care. She is now at Queen Elizabeth’s Hospital, a center in Birmingham that has treated every British battle casualty for the last decade. Yousafzai was targeted by the Taliban for “promoting secularism.”
