Malala is stable and making good progress.

LONDON -- Pakistan's teenage rights activist Malala Yousufzai, who was critically injured after being shot in the head by the Taliban, is stable and making good progress.

"The medical team caring for Malala Yousufzai at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham reported today that she is still stable and making good progress with her treatment," the hospital said in a statement.

"Only the medical team from the Queen Elizabeth and Birmingham Children's hospitals and Malala's immediate family has been given access to her bedside," it said.

Doctors say Malala continues to make steady progress at the hospital where she is being treated by a team on doctors.

On Tuesday, UK Foreign Secretary William Hague, Federal Interior Minister Rehman Malik and United Arab Emirates (UAE) Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah Bin Zayed met members of the medical team caring for the 15-year-old, and her father Ziauddin.

Afterwards, the ministerial delegation held a short press conference during which Mr Hague said Malala's "swift and full recovery is our absolute priority" and thanked the doctors at the hospital.
