BBC Correspondent Undergoes Successful Surgery After Being Shot In Face In Egypt

Nearly a week after he was shot in the face with a shotgun, BBC Middle East editor Jeremy Bowen had successful surgery to repair the damage.

Doctors removed the shotgun pellets from his face, remnants of the incident from last Friday, when he was shot outside the Muslim Brotherhood headquarters in Cairo while covering the protests there.

The Guardian has more on Bowen’s recovery.
