The Pakistani schoolgirl activist was admited at the hospital in October following an attack on October 9 on her schoolbus in northwestern Pakistan. The Taliban said it shot Malala, a campaigner for girls' education, for "promoting secularism."

She suffered severe head and chest injuries after being shot by gunmen who assaulted her after stopping the vehicle. The teenager was flown to England and admitted to the QEHB on October 15 to receive specialist treatment.

The schoolgirl will continue rehabilitation at her family's temporary West Midlands home, reports BBC News.

She is due to undergo cranial reconstruction surgery in the coming weeks.

Central to the tragic absurdity of this war is the question of language. Vladimir Putin has repeated that protecting ethnic Russians and the Russian-speaking populations of Ukraine was a driving motivation for his invasion.
