Chinese boy, 6, has eyes gouged out in gruesome attack
BEIJING (AFP) - A six-year-old boy in China had his eyes gouged out, blinding him for life, reports said on Tuesday, in a gruesome attack that may have been carried out by a ruthless organ trafficker.
Family members found the boy covered in blood some three to four hours after he went missing while playing outside, according to a television report posted online.
The child's eyes were found nearby but the corneas were missing, reports said, implying that an organ trafficker was behind the harrowing attack.
Police offered a 100,000 yuan (S$21,000) reward for information leading to the arrest of the sole suspect, who they said was a woman.
