Malik said he was satisfied with her treatment by Pakistani doctors.

The interior minister said Malala's attackers had been identified and would be brought to justice.

Malala was shot and seriously injured in the country's Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province Tuesday when she was returning home from school. Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack that has sparked outrage across the world.

Malik said doctors are satisfied that she is now out of danger.

The minister added that neurosurgeons from London and the US were ready and would be called to Pakistan if the need arose.

Doctors at the Combined Military Hospital (CMH) removed a bullet that pierced her head and got lodged in her shoulder.
