Injury detail

Archive footage showing a puddle of blood and a piece of bloodied cloth on a street accompanies a reference to the Taliban shooting people in a square. There is then relatively undetailed sight of a body in the back of a pickup truck. Another sequence shows the bus in which Malala and her friends were shot. There is blood on some of the seats, together with streaks of blood on the outside of the bus.
