Malala's friend Shazia Ramzan moves to UK

Pakistani schoolgirl Shazia Ramzan, who was with Malala Yousafzai when she was shot in the head by the Taliban after campaigning for girls' rights to education, has come to the UK to go to school.

Shazia was not the target of the attack but suffered injuries that left her in hospital for a month. She tried to stay in Pakistan's Swat valley after coming out of hospital, but has now decided she should follow the route of her friend Malala to the UK.

Doctors discharged Malala from hospital in January and she now attends Edgbaston High School for girls in Birmingham.
