Terror attack victim has specialist treatment in Birmingham

A British student shot in the head while in Pakistan with his family is receiving specialist treatment in Birmingham.

Ummad Farooq was gunned down during a visit to the country's capital Karachi on October 19th.

He was with five members of his family when they were shot at close range by two men on a bike.

It's believed they were targetted because they are members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community.

After the attack a bullet was lodged in Mr Farooq's skull. He travelled to Birmingham and was treated at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital to get the bullet removed.
