Mother of eye-gouge boy: "When I think about it, tears well up"

The Chinese boy whose eyes were gouged out in an attack in August is recovering from surgery which completes the process of implanting prosthetic eyes.

Guo Bin has undergone a series of operations for him to have prosthetic eyes to give him a natural appearance - but these will not restore his vision.

His mother, Wang Wenli, told the BBC: "When I think about it, tears well up in my eyes."
