A six-year-old boy lies on a hospital bed in Taiyuan in northern China. His eyes are covered by bandages.

He had his eyes gouged out by organ traffickers.

The boy was playing outside his home in Linfen, Shanxi Province, when he was snatched by a woman.

His parents found him three hours later screaming in a field covered in blood. His eyes were nearby but the corneas were missing.

His father told Shanxi Television: "He had blood all over his face. His eyelids were turned inside out. And inside, his eyeballs were not there."

China's state broadcaster CCTV said that boy was drugged and lost consciousness before his attacker took out his eyes.

Other reports said the kidnapper told the boy: "Don't cry and I won't gouge out your eyes."

Police were offering a 100,000 yuan reward for information leading to the arrest of the kidnapper, AFP reported.

The missing corneas suggests organ traffickers are behind the crime.
