London: Pakistan's President Asif Ali Zardari on Saturday visited Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani schoolgirl who is recovering in a British hospital after she was shot by the Taliban for campaigning for girls' education.

Mr Zardari also met with 15-year-old victim's family during a private meeting at the specialist Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham, central England, where Malala was flown from Pakistan in October following the brutal attack on her school bus.

"President Zardari, accompanied by his daughter Asifa Bhutto, met with clinicians who have been treating Malala since her admission to the hospital," the hospital said in a statement.

"They were brought up to date on the 15-year-old's medical progress and her future treatment plan by (the trust's) medical director, Dr Dave Rosser."
