Blinded boy: 'Why is it dark?'
The boy is now being treated at an eye hospital after a woman gouged out his eyes.

CHINA - More details, including photographs and a video, have been revealed about the case of a boy whose eyes were gouged out by a woman in China.

The six-year-old boy, surnamed Guo, was found covered in blood in the northern province of Shanxi after he went missing while playing outside, Chinese media reported previously.

His eyes, gouged out by an attacker, were recovered nearby, a police officer in Fenxi county, who declined to be named, told AFP.

The boy was being treated at an eye hospital and was not yet aware that he has been left blind for life, the Beijing Youth Daily said.

"He asks why the sky is always dark... And why the dawn still hasn't come," it quoted an uncle of the boy as saying.

"We could only tell him that his eyes had some injury and have to be bandaged. (We tell him that) they will be fine after the bandage is removed.
