International outrage grew Thursday at the shooting of a teenage Pakistani campaigner by the Taliban, with US President Barack Obama leading condemnation of the "disgusting" attack. 

Pakistani civil society activists carry candles to pay tribute to gunshot victim Malala Yousafzai and protest against her assassination attempt, in Lahore. Pakistani doctors on Wednesday removed a bullet from the 14-year-old child campaigner shot by the Taliban in a horrific attack condemned by national leaders and rights activists.

UN chief Ban Ki-moon also expressed horror at the attack on Malala Yousafzai, 14, who is in intensive care after she was shot in the head in broad daylight on a school bus on Tuesday, an assassination attempt that has appalled Pakistan.
