  • #Vietnam medics remove scissors after 18 years

    Vietnamese doctors have removed a pair of scissors left lodged in a man's abdomen for 18 years, it's reported.

    Specialist surgeons flew from Hanoi to assist at the operation in Thai Nguyen Province in the north of the country. The 54-year-old patient visited the hospital after being involved in a road accident last month, and an ultrasound test seemed to show a sharp instrument lying to the left of his stomach. A second check in a hospital in his nearby home province of Bac Kan removed any doubt - there was a 15cm (6-inch) pair of surgical scissors nestling next to his colonTuoi Tre newspaper reports.

    Ma Van Nhat says they may have been left inside him during a 1998 operation at Bac Kan General Hospital following another road accident, Vietnam Expressreports. He had noticed nothing since that time apart from some recent stomach pain, which did not respond to painkillers. The surgeons who carried out the three-hour procedure note the rusty handles of the scissors had become stuck to some nearby organs.

    The Health Ministry has ordered Bac Kan General Hospital to report on who may have left the scissors in Mr Ma by the end of the week. Hospital Director Trinh Thi Luong says she will do what she can, but doctors told Tuoi Tre that hospitals rarely keep patient records for more than 15 years. As for Mr Ma, he is expected to return home next week.

  • #Russia moves to expel #US diplomats in response to sanctions

    The Russian foreign ministry has called for the expulsion of 35 US diplomats in response to a similar move by Washington.

    Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said the request had been made to President Vladimir Putin.

    The Obama administration expelled 35 Russia diplomats and their families over alleged Russian hacking during the US election campaign.

    Russia denies any involvement and calls the US action "ungrounded".

    Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev accused the outgoing administration of President Barack Obama of ending in "anti-Russian death throes".

    Diplomatic spat goes undiplomatic

    Under the US action taken on Thursday:

    • Thirty-five diplomats from Russia's Washington embassy and its consulate in San Francisco were declared "persona non grata" and given 72 hours to leave the US with their families
    • Two properties said to have been used by Russian intelligence services in New York and Maryland will be closed
    • Sanctions were announced against nine entities and individuals including two Russian intelligence agencies, the GRU and the FSB

    Mr Obama, who will be replaced by Donald Trump on 20 January, had vowed action against Russia amid US accusations that it directed cyber-attacks on the Democratic Party and Hillary Clinton's campaign.

    Emails stolen from her campaign manager and from the servers of the Democratic National Committee - some containing embarrassing information for Democrats - were released during the election campaign.
