Horror shocks Egypt: Minor dies after dad impregnates her

Incident came to light when the pre-teen began bleeding and her mother rushed her to hospital

Two minor girls were brutally raped in separate incidents in Egypt and while one survived to tell the tale, the other succumbed to complications.

A 35-year-old unemployed man, with a criminal record, is alleged to have regularly abused his 13-year-old daughter, taking advantage of her wife’s absence at home in Alexandria governorate, reported Youm Al Sabea’a newspaper.

The incident came to light when the pre-teen began bleeding and her mother rushed her to hospital.

Medical examinations confirmed that the child had undergone an abortion.

The mother told cops that her child revealed to her about the number of times her father assaulted her, when she was alone  at home.

When the child succumbed to her injuries, the mother informed police. She also sought protection as her husband’s family threatened her not to file a complaint.

The man has been arrested and police is questioning neighbours and relatives of the child.

10-year-old raped by stranger

Meanwhile, in another incident in Kafr El Sheikh, a 10-year-old girl who was returning home from her tuition class was raped, beaten and left to die, by a stranger, reported vetogate website.

Residents near a construction site heard cries of the child and discovered her soaked in blood lying unconscious.

They informed police, who transferred her to hospital immediately.

Police had to wait for more than 10 days to interrogate the child, as she was unstable and doctors had advised against speaking to her.

When she recovered enough to speak, she told cops that she was afraid seeing a group of stray dogs while on her way back from tuition class. So she asked a stranger to help her cross the road and chase the dogs away.

However, he carried her to a nearby construction site, gagged and molested her. Later, he hit her head with a brick several times and left her there.

The suspect is still at large.
