Washington: The bravery and courage of young Pakistani education activist Malala Yousufzai, is an inspiration for all, the US said on Friday lauding the teenager who is to undergo a cranial surgery in the UK.
Malala, who was shot in the head by Taliban militants, was discharged temporarily from a London hospital on Friday before she undergoes a surgery.
"Our thoughts and prayers remain with her and with her family. And her bravery and courage are just an inspiration for all of us," State Department spokesperson, Victoria Nuland, told reporters at her daily news conference.

15-year-old Malala would continue her rehabilitation at her family's temporary English home before undergoing major reconstructive surgery in few weeks, the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham said.
