Chinese boy in eye-gouging case leaves hospital
HONG KONG (AFP) - A six-year-old Chinese boy who had his eyes gouged out was discharged from a Shenzhen hospital on Thursday, after being fitted with prosthetic eyeballs.
Guo Bin - known as Bin Bin - has made a full recovery from surgery to attach the implants, which look and move like normal eyes but will not enable him to see.
He was found covered in blood with his eyes removed near his home in the northern Chinese province of Shanxi in August after going missing while playing outside.
Chinese police suspect his aunt, who killed herself days later, was responsible amid reports of a family row.
