Taliban has taken the responsibility for the attack so far.
According to an other gal who also got injured besides her but has been recovered, told in a telly interview that terrorist/ Taliban first asked who Malala is, and then they opened fire straight in her forehead.
Right now she is in a very severer condition. Government has also allowed her to send abroad for any further treatment.
She is just 14 years old, a National Peace Award winner for her efforts to motive gals to get education and go to school at the time when Taliban was blowing up schools in Sawat, for her courage to speak up against them and their extremism in her BBC's Urdu blog Diary of a Pakistani school girl, 2009.
While reading one of her blog's entry, I came across to one of her post" I AM AFRAID" posted on 3rd Jan 2009.
I had a terrible dream yesterday with military helicopters and the Taleban. I have had such dreams since the launch of the military operation in Swat. My mother made me breakfast and I went off to school. I was afraid going to school because the Taleban had issued an edict banning all girls from attending schools.
Only 11 students attended the class out of 27. The number decreased because of Taleban's edict. My three friends have shifted to Peshawar, Lahore and Rawalpindi with their families after this edict.
On my way from school to home I heard a man saying 'I will kill you'. I hastened my pace and after a while I looked back if the man was still coming behind me. But to my utter relief he was talking on his mobile and must have been threatening someone else over the phone.
Unfortunately, some how same thing happened today.
