 Pakistani Doctors Remove 100 Nails From Teen's Stomach
Doctors at the Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Center (JPMC), Karachi, Pakistan, have removed 100 nails from a 17-year-old's stomach.

Muhammad Waqar, who cannot speak, had been eating the nails over the past one month.

He is now recovering from a surgery at the hospital's ward and is said to be suffering from a psychological disorder.

His family took him to JPMC earlier this month after complaints of severe abdominal pains.

"When the doctors took X-rays of his chest, it showed that his insides had been littered with several nails," The News quoted the father, Muhammad Ilyas, a resident of Manzoor Colony, as saying.

Pointing towards the jar in which the metal nails have been kept, Dr Arif Raza, the Resident Surgical at the ward, said: "Over hundred nails were found in his stomach."
