Pakistani schoolgirl shot in the head by the Taliban speaks for first time after surgery
Our take: The 15-year-old Pakistani girl who was shot in the head by the Taliban in October of last year says that she is alive and well thanks to "the prayers of people because all the people, men, women and children, all of them have prayed for me. And because of these prayers, God has given me this new life."
The Pakistani schoolgirl shot in the head by the Taliban has spoken of being given "a new life" to serve the people who have prayed for her, in a video released on Monday.
Malala Yousafzai, 15, made the comments in a video recorded before her last bout of surgery at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham.
Speaking clearly, but with noticeable damage to the right side of her face, said: "Today you can see that I'm alive. I can speak. I can see you, I can see everyone.
"And today I can speak. I am getting better day by day and it's just because of the prayers of people.
"Because all the people, men, women and children, all of them have prayed for me. And because of these prayers, God has given me this new life.
