LONDON (AP) - Doctors in England treating the 14-year-old Pakistani girl shot by the Taliban say she still shows signs of infection but is making progress.
The medical director at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham says Malala Yousufzai is able to stand with help and to write.
But he adds that the infection means "''she is not out of the woods yet."
The Taliban have said they targeted Malala because she promoted "Western thinking" and criticized Taliban actions.
