Nairobi - Doctors at the Kenyatta National Hospital KNH have succesfully removed a bullet from the head of Likoni terrorist attack victim, baby Osinya's head.
The operation took place Tuesday morning to remove the bullet which was lodged in the baby's head after the terrorist attack last weekend which saw six people killed.
The baby who lost his mother in the attack as she tried to protect him from the gun wielding assassins is stable and recuperating well.
KNH communications officer Simon Ithae said that the operation was a success and thanked all those that had helped in his operation.
" The baby has been treated and is in great condition. The operation took place Tuesday morning and he is well, he said.
The government has said it will take care of the costs incurred in the operation and eventual recuperation of baby Osinya.
Osinya was among many victims of the terror attack in Mombasa which shocked the country especially because it took place in a church.
When the story of his miraculous survival broke, the government quickly undertook measures to ensure he was treated and discharged with president Uhuru Kenyatta also offering his sympathies.
" We are humbled by the survival of baby Osinya despite all the odds and we will do what is in our power to ensure he is treated and discharged, he said.
Other victims of the Likoni attack have since been released from hospital with only two who picked up serious injuries still in hospital.
