Three year-old Hala al Massri from Gaza is recovering at a home in London after she underwent a heart operation at the Royal Brompton Hospital. She was evacuated from Gaza after doctors discovered she has a "very complex" heart condition.

Accompanied by her mother, she had a three-day journey to London so surgeons at the Royal Brompton could perform the operation. She is now recovering with a host family in London.
