akistani officials say they've arrested several suspects in connection with the shooting earlier this week of 14-year-old Malala Yousafzai. The Taliban immediately claimed responsibility for the brutal attack, which left the young girl in serious condition at a military hospital. Doctors were able to remove a bullet near her spine on Wednesday, but she remains unconscious and on a ventilator. Malala, who began speaking out against the Taliban at age 11, has long been a target of the militant group, which promised to "finish this chapter" should she make a full recovery.
