Police said Tuesday that "two well-wishers" were stopped overnight as they sought to enter the English hospital where shot Pakistani teen activist Malala Yousufzai is being treated.
The two were intercepted in a public area of the hospital, West Midlands Police said. Officers "recorded their details and advised the pair that they would not be allowed to see her," a statement said. No arrests were made.
Earlier, hospital director Dave Rosser said a "number of people" were arrested overnight trying to get into Malala's hospital room.
The people were claiming to be relatives, he said, adding that there was more than one incident at the Birmingham, England, hospital.
Rosser said the hospital and authorities were "very comfortable" with the security arrangements in place.
International experts are planning for the reconstructive surgery that 14-year-old Malala will need.
Malala appears to be "every bit as strong as we had been led to believe," Rosser said, adding that the consultant leading her care "is impressed by her resilience and her strength."FULL STORY
