London: The 14-year-old Pakistani teenager activist Malala Yousafzai undergoing treatment in a British hospital continues to make good progress, doctors attending her said.

Dr David Rosser, the medical director of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham in a statement last night said that the team of specialists from hospitals had been "impressed with her strength and resilience."     

Her condition on Monday afternoon was described as "stable" and her response to treatment so far indicated that she could make a good recovery from her injuries.

Messages of support and offers of financial assistance for Malala have been flooding in to the hospital. A message board has been set up on the Trust's website to allow well-wishers to leave their messages of support.     

The teenager schoolgirl was shot last Tuesday in the head by a Taliban gunman for her campaign supporting girls' education. Malala was flown to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in an air ambulance from Pakistan on Monday evening for treatment.
