Malala was flown to the UK on Monday.

The 14-year-old Pakistani activist and blogger, Malala Yousafzai, who was shot twice in the head by the Pakistani Taliban, is partially out of coma, a New York Times correspondent, Adams B. Ellick, has said.

Mr. Ellick, on his facebook page said that “Malala isnt fully conscious but out of coma. Responding w/ hands & feet. Drs are confident she can recover quite well, a Pak-UK leader just told me.”

Malala was well known in Pakistan for her campaign for Girl Child Education, and was attacked by the Taliban on October 9 while she was in a bus on her way back from school. The Taliban accused her of “promoting secularism.”

She was flown to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham on Monday for a reconstructive surgery and has been responding to treatment after the two bullets were removed from her skull.
