Story posted/last updated: 01 August 2013
The President of Pakistan, Asif Ali Zardari, visited the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham (QEHB) on Saturday 8 December to receive an update on the recovery of schoolgirl Malala Yousafzai.
President Zardari, accompanied by his daughter Asifa Bhutto, met with clinicians who have been treating Malala since her admission to the hospital on 15 October.
They were brought up to date on the 15-year-old’s medical progress and her future treatment plan by QEHB’s Medical Director Dr Dave Rosser.
The President thanked the hospital for their outstanding care and said that Malala was a “remarkable girl and a credit to Pakistan.”
President Zardari and Asifa Bhutto then had a short five-minute private meeting with Malala, her father Ziauddin and her brothers Khushal Khan and Atal Khan.
