Malala's Operation

Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham has released images showing the trajectory of the bullet fired into Malala Yousafzai's head by an Islamic thug (1 and 2) and the titanium plate used to replace the piece of skull blown away by the thug's bullet (3). Miraculously the bullet missed her brain, but destroyed her left inner ear, making her profoundly deaf that side. During five hours of surgery on Saturday, a cochlear implant was inserted to help relieve Malala's deafness. The plucky and articulate 15-year-old is feeling well and can be seen chatting to her consultant in a video recorded on Sunday (CLICK).
