Man held with dead infant in bag

By Staff

Saudi police arrested an African expatriate after finding a dead newborn baby inside a bag he was carrying in a park, the Arabic language daily 'Okaz' reported on Wednesday.

A Saudi visitor to the park in the western town of Taif phoned the police after suspecting that the bag carried by the African man contained illegal stuff, the paper said.

“After searching his bag, they found a dead infant inside it…they then referred the African man to the psychiatry hospital after suspecting he is mentally normal,” the paper said.

“A woman who was with the African was also arrested.”
