LONDON - A Pakistani schoolgirl shot in the head by the Taliban for advocating girls' education has been discharged from a British hospital where she had reconstructive surgery on her skull.

The attack on Malala Yousufzai, 15, was condemned worldwide and made her a symbol of resistance to the militant group's crackdown on women's rights.

She was flown from Pakistan to Britain for specialist treatment after the Oct. 9 assault.

The Queen Elizabeth Hospital in the English city of Birmingham where Yousufzai was treated said on Friday she had made a good recovery and would continue her rehabilitation nearby at her family's temporary home.
