Mexican Mum Held After Son's Eyes Gouged Out

A mother in Mexico has been arrested on suspicion of gouging out the eyes of her five-year-old son during a ceremony.

Seven people have been arrested, including the boy's parents, after his eyeballs were pulled out during the ritual.

The incident happened in Nezahualcoyotl, a working-class neighbourhood of Mexico City.

"There was some kind of ceremony inside a house," said Laura Uribe, a spokeswoman for state prosecutors.

The mother is believed to have removed the boy's eyes with her bare hands because he refused to close them during the ceremony, police said during a news conference.

Officers found the mutilated boy in the house on Thursday morning, before rushing him to a hospital in Mexico City for treatment.
Anyone who goes to a psychiatrist should have his head examined.
