Pregnant woman aborts foetus at police station

A Syrian woman who got pregnant through a relationship with a man aborted herself inside a police station in a bid to escape prosecution.

Police arrested the divorced woman after catching her with a man and tests showed she was pregnant, 'Al Watan' Arabic language daily said.

“She was locked up at the police station pending trial, but she managed to abort herself to escape punishment, thinking the police would not know,” the paper said.

It said the woman was rushed to hospital where she was admitted to the intensive care unit, adding that she would soon stand trial on charges of having an illicit affair and killing her foetus.
