“I was forced to get married at 15″ 17 year old Ethiopian girl

Ahead of Girl Summit 2014, Sophie Goddard travelled to Ethiopia to speak to girls affected by early marriage

Sophie Goddard

At 15, my ‘worries’ probably stretched to passing my GCSEs, or which one of my dodgy outfits made me look over 18 (answer: none). Boys played a large part – massive, even – but marriage? That was another lifetime away – one that went on to play second fiddle to friends, studying and partying for the next decade.

Indian boy has 232 teeth removed [Read below]

Surgeons in Mumbai have removed 232 teeth from the mouth of an Indian teenager in what they believe may be a world-record operation.

Ashik Gavai, 17, sought medical help for a swelling on the right side of his lower jaw and the case was referred to the city's JJ hospital, where they found he was suffering from a condition known as complex odontoma, said head of dentistry Sunanda Dhivare-Palwankar.

"We operated on Monday and it took us almost seven hours. We thought it may be a simple surgery but once we opened it there were multiple pearl-like teeth inside the jaw bone," she said.

After removing those they found a larger "marble-like" structure that they struggled to shift and eventually had to "chisel out" and remove in fragments.
