ARIZONA - New photographs have been released of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords since the Arizona shootings.

The pictures show little sign that Giffords was shot in the head less than six months ago.

The photos were posted by her office on Facebook this weekend.

Giffords could be released from a rehab center later this month.

One friend says Giffords has started initiating conversation.

There are still questions whether Giffords will ever be able to return to Congress.
