Ali Ismail Abbas
Ali Ismail Abbas, the Iraqi boy who lost both his arms in the war, has moved out of intensive care say doctors.

He is now staying on a normal ward, after a number of operations to save his life.

Ali is in a hospital in Kuwait, and his doctors added that he's been chatting to other kids and has also been walking around a bit.

The 12-year-old boy was very badly injured and burned in an attack on Baghdad which killed his parents and most of his family.

Both of his arms were so badly injured in the blast that doctors had to remove what was left.

They have also had to work very hard to make his skin better.

Ali has been promised a pair of hi-tech false arms.
