A bullet sent him to Salem, a dream sent him home
Libyan rebel came to Mass. for medical treatment
At a rehabilitation hospital in Salem, Muktar Alkhazmi used his right hand to raise his outstretched left arm. He grimaced. Annette CotÃ©, the physical therapist, touched his quivering shoulder, then frowned. “How many repetitions have you been doing?’’ she asked. “Khamzeen,’’ Alkhazmi replied. “Fifty,’’ said his Arabic-English interpreter. CotÃ© chastised her patient; he was supposed to do 15, and he was risking another injury. But the accountant-turned-freedom fighter was impatient to return home to Libya.
