Fake Relatives Try to Get Access to Malala Yousufzai


Police on Tuesday questioned two people at a hospital where a teenage Pakistani activist is recovering after being shot, raising fears about the girl's security amid pledges by the Taliban to finish the job.

Medical Director Dave Rosser of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham stressed Tuesday that security was "under control." He said several individuals had turned up at the hospital claiming to be the girl's relatives but didn't get very far. He said the people were arrested, but police said they had merely been questioned.

"We don't believe there's any threat to her personal security," Rosser told journalists, explaining the hospital did not believe the suspects were related to Malala. "We think it's probably people being over-curious."

Yeah its probably people just being overly curious. I mean its not like there is anyone in the UK who are sympathetic to the Taliban and would think they were doing Allah a service by finishing the job.
