An X-ray showed the magnetic beads all stuck together inside the young boy's body.Local media outlets report that the beads can often be found at markets where they are sold as toys, although it is not clear if this is where Murat got them. Dr Halil Kocamaz, a paediatric gastroenterologist, and his team removed the 17 magnetic beads, which each measured 5 millimetres (0.19 inches) in diameter.

Medics found the beads had connected together and formed a bracelet inside the boy, piercing his stomach wall, Haberturk reports.The operation to remove them reportedly took around two hours and Murat is currently recovering in hospital after the surgery.
