It is not clear how or why the man swallowed the phone, which had been in his stomach for four days by the time doctors operated.Doctors in the city of Pristina, Kosovo—a landlocked state located in southeastern Europe—operated on the 33-year-old man after the phone had been in his stomach for four days.
Although the police still aren't sure what provoked the attack on Sunday, the department confirmed in the news release that "all indications are that the two pit bull dogs killed the woman."
The El Paso Times reported that the two dogs were impounded by Animal Control officers, while the department confirmed that an investigation is continuing into the incident.
According to National Pit Bull Victim Awareness (NPBVA), an organization that advocates for groups in the U.S. and Canada that support victims of pit bull attacks, 31 people were killed by the dogs in the first nine months of last year.

3 Brothers Die After Getting Stuck in Manure Pit
"Always treat a pit as if it is a death trap and take necessary precautions to protect yourself and others if entry is necessary," the National Ag Safety Database states.On Tuesday afternoon, three brothers—Gary, Todd and Brad Wuebker—were conducting maintenance on a pump inside a manure storage pit in Mercer County, Ohio, before someone reported all three of them had become unconscious.
However, despite the dogs' violent reputation, Sara Ondrako, a certified dog behavior consultant who is the founder and CEO of the American Pit Bull Foundation, toldin June that "pit bull-type dogs are innately no more likely to bite or attack humans, in fact, quite the opposite.
"They have been selectively bred over centuries to be human-friendly, despite also being bred for some dog-aggressive traits."
Pit bulls, which consist of four separate breeds, are descendants of the original English bull-baiting dog that were bred to "bite and hold bulls, bears and other large animals around the face and head," according to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
Information on the ASPCA's website acknowledges that the dogs are prone to fighting, but echoes the NPBVA by stating that pit bulls aren't aggressive by nature.
"Some pit bulls were selected and bred for their fighting ability. That means that they may be more likely than other breeds to fight with dogs," the ASPCA writes.
Remorseful Jordan reveals Luc Longley 'regret'
Michael Jordan has paid tribute to former Bulls teammate Luc Longley after the Aussie was left out of The Last Dance.Longley's absence from the docuseries raised eyebrows Down Under especially since he was the starting centre for the Bulls team that captured the world's imagination on its barnstorming run to three championships in 1996-98.
However, the organization states that the history of the breed does not "mean that they can't be around other dogs or that they're unpredictably aggressive," and adds that "these dogs have long been popular family pets, noted for their gentleness, affection and loyalty."
Newsweek has contacted the El Paso Police Department and the NPBVA for comment.
