Malala speaks for first time on camera: 'God has given me this new life'

[Updated at 11:17 a.m. ET] We've just received video that shows Malala Yousufzai speaking for the first time on camera since she was shot.

"I'm getting better day by day," she said, citing the prayers of her supporters. "Because of these prayers God has given me this new life."

[Posted at 9:57 a.m. ET] Pakistani schoolgirl Malala Yousufzai who was shot in the head by the Taliban is doing very well after two operations over the weekend and will not require further surgery, her doctors said today.

"She has no long-lasting brain injuries ... the brain is healing very well," her neurosurgeon Anwen White told reporters in Birmingham, England.
