Iraqi Girl in Maine for Surgery

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — A six-year-old Iraqi girl injured by an American sniper more than a year ago in Iraq is in Maine for surgery to repair some of the damage.

Nora Abdulhameed has had multiple surgeries since she was hit in the skull by a bullet in October 2006, but she still needs a prosthetic placed in her skull to protect her brain. She'll also be getting some plastic surgery.

A doctor at Maine Medical Center will deliver those services free of charge and Ronald McDonald house will provide free room and board.
