ALGERIA SOUHANE MASSACRE
November 27, 1997 - Algeria
The second of three massacres by Armed Islamic Group (GIA ) on the small mountain town of Souhane leaves a further 18 men, 3 women an 4 children dead. The town with just 4,000 inhabitants was attacked in an even worse massacre in August where 64 were killed. The GIA conducted a violent campaign of civilian massacres, sometimes wiping out entire villages in its area of operation in an attempt to overthrow the Algerian government and replace it with an Islamic state. During it's reign of terror the GIA is believed to have been responsible for the murder of between 2,000 and 5,000 innocent civilians.
LIVING LIVER DONOR
November 27, 1989 - University of Chicago, U.S.A.
Dr. Christoph Broelsch's team of doctors at the University of Chicago Hospitals implanted part of a woman's liver in her 21-month-old daughter in the world's first successful living donor liver transplant. Alyssa Smith from Schertz, Texas, received a portion of her mother Teri's liver. Dr Broelsch performed the first liver transplant using a segment of a cadaver liver while at the University of Hannover in 1984. At the University of Chicago, he performed the first segmental transplant in the United States (1985), the first split-liver transplant (one donor, two recipients) in the U.S. (1988) and developed the technique for transplantation from a living donor.
