Pakistani teen to recover at home

Malala Yousafzai, the teenage Pakistani education activist shot in the head by the Taliban, was discharged from a British hospital Friday after undergoing skull reconstruction and receiving a cochlear implant to restore her hearing. The 15-year-old had been released for a few weeks in January but re-entered Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham to undergo the latest procedures. The hospital said she is "making good recovery" and will continue her rehabilitation at her family's temporary home in Birmingham.

Stolen Matisse to be returned

A painting by Henri Matisse stolen more than a decade ago from a museum in Venezuela will soon be returned to the country, officials said Friday. The painting, Odalisque in Red Pants, is to be returned from the United States, said Raul Grioni, president of Venezuela's Cultural Patrimony Institute. Authorities say the 1925 painting, which is valued at about $3 million, was stolen from the Caracas museum in 2000. It was found in July when a couple tried to sell it to undercover FBI agents at a hotel in Miami Beach.
