Malala Yousafzai, the 14-year-old activist shot in the head by the Taliban last week for advocating girls' rights to an education, is being flown to Britain for treatment. The Pakistani military said Yousafzai is in good enough condition to make the eight-hour flight to Britain, where pediatric specialists will try to rebuild her damaged skull bones and help her recuperate. Pakistan is still searching for the gunmen; the Taliban has warned it will try to kill her again if she survives. "We do not tolerate people like Malala speaking against us," Taliban spokesman Ihsanullah Ihsan said.
