Sunderland student Ummad Farooq is recovering after an operation to remove a bullet from his head, after he was shot in the forehead during what he believes to have been a terrorist attack at his brother's wedding in Pakistan.
The 22-year-old had travelled to Pakistan with his family and was shot by two men on a bike in Karachi, Pakistan.
The student's brother was killed in the attack, and his father was also injured.
Mr Farooq is now recovering after surgery in a hospital in Birmingham - where the bullet was removed from his head in what has been called "pioneering surgery".
