Doctors in Greece have managed to reattach the hands and feet of a woman who police say was brutally attacked by her husband.

The 30-year-old Albanian woman is in the intensive care unit at an Athens hospital, according to published reports.

The woman underwent emergency surgery in a southern Greece hospital Saturday and was flown to Athens for additional surgery.
