Mystery: Doctors are yet to come up with an explanation  for the unusual condition, claiming that Saadiya (left) is not suffering from  any known disease. Right, a small box full of stones  that have fallen out  of the girl’s eyes

A video of the bizarre phenomenon was posted  on YouTube by Yemeni television channel Azal.

Footage shows Saadiya lying on a hospital  bed, surrounded by doctors and relatives – one of whom can be seen brushing a  stone out of the child’s eye with a cloth.

A doctor then holds up a small box full of  stones that have fallen out of Saadiya’s eyes in just a few hours.

Medics said they could not give an  explanation for the condition – with Saadiya not suffering from any known  disease, according to the Daily Mirror.

However, locals have spoken of their fears  that the young girl is possessed by magic.

‘The case has triggered panic in the area  where this girl lives,’ a presenter can be heard saying in the video.

‘Some say the girl could be gripped by a  magic spell, while others say it might be the devil.

‘Others fear it could be the start of a  dangerous epidemic.’
