China police hunt for woman who allegedly gouged out eyes of 6-year-old boy
BEIJING (AP) - Police in northern China launched a massive search on Wednesday for a woman accused of gouging out the eyes of a 6-year-old boy.
Authorities in the city of Linfen in Shanxi province offered a 100,000 yuan (S$20,947) reward for the woman's capture.
Police did not say if they had identified a suspect, and the boy said only that the woman spoke with an accent from outside the area.
State media said the boy was recovering in a hospital, but had lost his sight permanently following the brutal ordeal on Saturday.
