Ugly wounds... The five-year-old boy who was attacked by an older boy in northern Namibia last Wednesday is recovering from knife wounds to his head, throat, neck and mouth in the Oshakati State Hospital. A 10-year-old boy has been arrested for attacking Wedeinge Christian at the village of Onambango in the Ohangwena Region. He has appeared in the Ohangwena Magistrates Court on a charge of attempted murder, but his identity cannot be released because he is a minor. The suspect, who has been placed in the care of his parents, is accused of attacking the five-year-old with a kitchen knife after the two had a quarrel. Photo: Oswald Shivute
