Yemen girl, 3, hospitalised after rape by father

Family ‘disowns’ man, calls for execution

22 Gulf News

Sana’a: A three-year-old Yemeni girl has been admitted to intensive care with severe bleeding after being raped by her father, the news website reported on Monday.

The little girl was unconscious when she arrived at Al Thawra hospital in Sana’a, and suffered a vaginal rupture which caused the severe bleeding, the website linked to the defence ministry said.

It did not say when the assault happened.

The girl’s uncle has demanded his brother be executed for the alleged crime, saying that the whole family “disowns” the man for the “unforgivable heinous crime,” according to

The unnamed man warned that the family is ready to execute the father if authorities “do not act swiftly.”

Child marriage is common in impoverished and largely tribal Yemen, but does not appear to have been a factor in the alleged rape.

    Shocking to read some of the comments here. People actually don't seethe real picture, this is about a 3 year old innocent girl, not aboutwhere she is from, these sick individuals come from many different walksof life, the only unfortunate thing is that they never mention theculprits name. NAME AND SHAME - LET THE WORLD KNOW OF THIS SICKINDIVIDUAL. I believe that the world needs to know these people actuallydo exist it hopefully will make people more aware. i believe that to be a lenient punishment, a more severepunishment should be implemented to make an example make him suffer forhis crimes here and surely he will face the wrath of the lord.

    Animals are better than this. Humanity is becoming extinct from people..I don't understand why people don't want such news to be published. Thenews along with the punishment he is sentenced should be published sothat men like this wouldn't dare do such crimes again. I pray for thegirl to be in better hands now.
