Protests spread across Pakistan today in response to the shooting of 14-year-old Malala Yousafzai by a Taliban assassin which left her fighting for life.

Surgeons today said they have successfully removed a bullet from the teenager, who was shot in front of her classmates on board her school bus yesterday.

Malala was waiting to leave the grounds of her school in Mingora, in Pakistan’s Swat Valley, when a bearded man entered the bus and shot her and another girl.

The 14-year-old is widely known and respected for her work to promote the schooling of girls and denouncing the atrocities committed by the Taliban.

Fury over the attack has spread across the country, with demonstrators protesting in Lahore, Peshawar, Islamabad and Mingora earlier today.

Many schools in Swat Valley closed their doors in protest over the shooting, and the country's army chief vowed to fight on against militants as anger erupted across the nation.

The Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) have taken responsibility for the assassination attempt and told a Pakistani newspaper they will target her again if she survives.
