Girl shot by Taliban undergoes 2 operations in England

Birmingham’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital said doctors for 15-year-old Malala Yousufzai, who was targeted for advocating girls’ education, were ‘‘very pleased’’ with her progress after five hours of skull reconstruction and ear surgery on Saturday.
