I'm sorry to tell you,this child is only one of many who have lost an eye or their sight in these riots. Such shocking brutality in a so called 'civilised' country has taken Turkey back 30 years. Shame on you AKP. Your media may have blocked all this, but SKY, RT, BBC,Al Jazeera have been streaming live pictures of everything.
