'Mental' dad chains 1-year-old daughter

By Staff

A Saudi father tied up his one-year-old daughter with chains and took her to the Red Crescent hospital in the Gulf Kingdom for treatment, saying she has psychological problems. But the shocked staff discovered that the one who is ill is the father.

Medical staff were caught off guard when the Saudi man walked into their centre in the central town of Makkah at dawn on Saturday and handed them the chained baby.

When they asked him why he had tied her up, he told them that he believes she is suffering from psychological problems.

“Doctors there decided to hand the girl to the obstetrics hospital after they discovered that the father is mentally ill,” Sabq Arabic language newspaper said, adding that police were informed about the incident.
Saudi to sue ministry after daughter’s fall from school bus

A Saudi man is planning to sue the Ministry of Education after his little daughter suffered from fractures when she fell out of the school bus while moving.

Luluah in the primary school in the southern town of Khamis Muthait was returning home from class in the bus when the window she was sitting by snapped and fell off, causing her to fall out of the bus and hit the road.

Alwatan newspaper said Luluah was rushed to hospital where she was treated for a fracture in her right shoulder and bruises on various parts of her body.

“I blame the Ministry of Education for this accident as the window was not fixed properly…I will not abandon my daughter’s rights in this case as such an accident could happen to other students in the future,” it quoted her father as saying.
