Pakistani civil society activists carried candles to pay tribute to gunshot victim Malala Yousafzai and protest against her assassination attempt in eastern Pakistan's Lahore on Oct. 10, 2012.

Pakistani Taliban Tuesday claimed responsibility for the attack on 14-year-old Malala Yousafzai, Pakistan's first National Peace Award winner.

A Pakistani child activist shot in the head by the Taliban has improved but remains in intensive care with a 70 percent chance of survival, doctors said Thursday as they canvas expert advice abroad.

The shooting of 14-year-old Malala Yousafzai on a school bus in the Swat valley has been denounced worldwide and by the Pakistani authorities, who have offered a reward of more than $100,000 for the capture of her attackers.

Two of her school friends were also injured in the attack which was carried out as retribution for Malala's campaign for the right to an education during a two-year Taliban insurgency in the region.
