Malala Yousafzai, the 15-year-old Pakistani girl who spoke out against the Taliban and was shot in the head by one of its gunman for her bravery, “has stood for the first time since her attack,” ITV News, The Associated Press and other news outlets are reporting.

They’re getting that word from doctors at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham, England, where Malala is being treated for the injuries she received 10 days ago when she was attacked near her home in Pakistan’s Swat Valley. The doctors just briefed reporters, as the BBC reports on its Twitter page.

The hospital adds on the webpage it has created for updates on Malala’s condition that she is “comfortable and stable.”

The hospital also has a webpage with information on how to get cards, donations and messages to Malala. The attack on her has sparked outrage in Pakistan and grabbed headlines around the world. [Copyright 2012 National Public Radio]
