Malala’s ‘relatives’ attempt visit
A NUMBER of people were detained by police after arriving at hospital, claiming to be related to Malala Yousafzai.
Dr Dave Rosser, medical director at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, said he did not believe there was a threat to the teenager’s safety.
He said: “It is a police issue, but I understand that a number of people turned up claiming to be members of Malala’s family, which we don’t believe to be true, and [they] have been detained.
“We don’t believe there is any threat to her personal security – we think it’s probably people being over-curious.”
Dr Rosser said the security operation was in the hands of the police and did not discuss any further details.
However, he added that the hospital and West Midlands Police were “comfortable with the levels of security”.
The West Midlands force said last night that there had not been any arrests at the hospital.
