The seven-year-old girl, whose family was shot dead by a gunman in the French Alps could have been left blinded, according to The Telegraph.
Zainab al-Hilli survived the attack despite being shot in the shoulder and pistol-whipped around the head, bu there are concerns her health is deteriorating.
The facial injuries were reportedly so horrific that she could lose her sight in one eye. A police source was quoted as saying of Zainab:
She suffered multiple facial injuries that caused two subdural hematomas and a fractured orbital bone. She was beaten around the face with great force, the trauma was immense.
Brett Martin, the first witness who found the British family in the Alps has described the moment he came across the attack.
A friend of the al-Hilli family has said he believes he could assist the investigation into the fatal shootings of the three family members.
A previously unreported witness has told a French paper how he came across the aftermath of the killings of the al-Hilli family in the Alps.
