Malala Yousafzai Survives

The BBC reports that surgeons have removed a bullet from the head of Malala Yousafzai the gifted 14-year-old Pakistani girl a day after she was shot by Taliban gunmen in north-western Pakistan's Swat Valley.
The operation on Malala Yousafzai, a campaigner for girls' rights, went well, her father told the BBC.

The attack sparked outrage among many Pakistanis, who gathered in several cities for anti-Taliban protests and held prayers for the girl's recovery.

The militants said they targeted her because she "promoted secularism".
