Malala Yousafzai is reported to be in a stable condition after Wednesday morning's operation in Peshawar. The campaigner for girls' rights was shot in the head on Tuesday as she headed home from school in Mingora. The attack, in which two other girls were wounded, has been widely condemned and sparked a social media firestorm. Pakistani politicians led by the president and prime minister condemned the shooting, which the US state department has called barbaric and cowardly. Thousands of people around the world have sent the teenage campaigner messages of support via social media. Doctors who treated Miss Yousafzai in Mingora initially said she was out of danger, but she was then taken by helicopter to Peshawar for further treatment. There, doctors removed a bullet early on Wednesday morning, hospital officials told the BBC. Earlier, President Zardari said the attack would not shake Pakistan's resolve to fight Islamist militants or the government's determination to support women's education. The shooting - in which two other girls were reportedly wounded - has been condemned by most of Pakistan's major political parties, TV celebrities and human rights groups. Taliban spokesman Ehsanullah Ehsan told BBC Urdu on Tuesday that the group had attacked the teenager because she was anti-Taliban and secular, adding that she would not be spared if she survived.
