amputation?

Since i do not generally believe whatever you guys post, give us the so-called "official web site" you use as the source of this inforamtion so I can check it out for myself rather than accepting your claims reported as news.

If you cannot do so, it will cofirm my suspicion of propaganda. Don't refer me to the "human rights" outfit which has no redibility either.
