Dubai: An Egyptian driver has been arrested after being found guilty of raping his three children, local media reported.

The victims, a six-year-old girl, eight-year-old boy and five-year-old boy, said their father assaulted them sexually.
Upon being interrogated, the father admitted to committing the heinous crime, after being stripped of all the feelings of paternity.
Official statistics from Egypt’s Interior Ministry’s revealed that over 20,000 rapes take place every year in the country, although activists claim the real number is 10 times higher.
