Couple held for illegitimate babies, abortion

Kuwaiti police arrested a Syrian expatriate and his Sri Lankan girl friend for having two babies from an illegitimate relationship and murdering a third while still in the mother’s womb.

Police raided the couple’s apartment in the capital after a tip-off and found two boys aged two and three years.

“The two confessed that the two boys are their children and that they have been living together for five years as husband and wife without marrying,” 'Alanba' newspaper reported on Wednesday.

The Syrian also confessed that he gave his girl friend miscarriage pills to abort the third baby as she was pregnant in her sixth month. The paper quoted police officials as saying the man confessed to burying the baby in a beach area in Kuwait City but search operations have not yet resulted in finding the body.
