Malala’s Father: She Will ‘Rise Again’

Malala Yousafzai, the 14-year-old Pakistani girl shot in the head by the Taliban, is recovering well in Britain, her father said on Friday. Reunited with her family at a hospital in Birmingham, Ziauddin Yousafzai, cried when he first laid eyes on her. Talking to a room full of reporters Friday, he called his daughter’s prognosis a “miracle” and said that she will “rise again.” Malala was attacked after writing about the need to improve girls’ education in Pakistan, which inspired an international crusade in her defense.
