Disabled five-year-old Tafida Raqeeb arrives in Italy


A severely disabled five-year-old girl whose parents won a High Court battle to move her abroad to continue her life-support treatment has arrived in Italy. A judge ruled earlier this month that Tafida Raqeeb could be moved from the Royal London Hospital to the Gaslini children’s hospital in Genoa. The youngster was taken by chartered plane from the UK on Tuesday, arriving at Genoa Airport as darkness fell.
