Fallujah Boy Too Severely Injured for Prosthetic Leg

Mustafa lost his leg, hip and large section of his colon when a US missile struck Fallujah just days before the second invasion of the city. The strike also injured his mother. One side of Mustafa's pelvis had been severed from his body, and doctors at first ruled out a prosthetic leg. However, after meeting with prosthetists, the doctors reconsidered and a prosthetic leg was specially designed and built for him.
