A 15-year-old education campaigner shot in the head by a Taliban gunman in Pakistan has thanked people around the world for supporting her.


Malala Yousafzai was flown to Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham, after being shot on a school bus in October.


Her father Zianuddin Yousafzai said she wanted to thank well-wishers for helping her “survive and stay strong”.


Meanwhile, more than 60,000 people have signed a petition calling for Malala to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.


Doctors in Birmingham, where Malala has been receiving specialist treatment, have said she stands every chance of making a good recovery.


She had campaigned for the rights of girls to have an education and had written a diary for the BBC Urdu service when the Pakistan Taliban controlled her home area of Swat.
