Kuwait Times - - FRONT PAGE - By Hanan Al-Saadoun

A 5-year-old girl was killed by her mother and her boyfriend. Po­lice re­ceived a call about a girl who died af­ter fall­ing from a height in Qu­sour. De­tec­tives and paramedics dis­patched to the scene no­ticed some bruises on the child’s body, so they called foren­sic ex­perts. The body was then re­ferred to the coro­ner.

When her mother, a di­vorcee, was ques­tioned, she con­fessed that she was with her boyfriend. They re­peat­edly beat the girl be­cause she was dis­turb­ing them, lead­ing to her death. The source said the boyfriend took the mother and the girl’s body to their car, then the mother went home and called po­lice, claim­ing the girl had fallen, but bruises on her body in­di­cated oth­er­wise. The mother’s boyfriend was ar­rested at dawn yes­ter­day.
