Artificial eye hope for Chinese eye gouging boy

Chinese police have said a six-year-old boy whose eyes were gouged out may have been attacked by his aunt.

State news agency Xinhua said Zhang Huiying killed herself six days after her nephew Guo Bin was found covered in blood in a field in the rural area of Linfen city. Doctors hope to give him artificial eyes to restore some limited sight.
