Pakistani girl activist's condition 'satisfactory'
RAWALPINDI, Pakistan (AP) - A 14-year-old Pakistani activist who was shot by a Taleban gunman after speaking out for girls' education is in "satisfactory" condition at a military hospital, a spokesman said on Friday, cautioning that the next few days would be critical.
The shooting of Malala Yousufzai on Tuesday as she was coming home from school set off an international outcry.
Major General Asim Saleem Bajwa said she was being kept unconscious and on a ventilator, and doctors would decide when to take her off.
"Her blood pressure is normal. Heartbeat is normal, and thanks to God, her condition is satisfactory," Gen Bajwa said.
