A five-year-old girl has died after her father – a ‘prominent religious scholar’ – allegedly beat her to death with ‘whips and hot metal’.
Lamaa died in the intensive care unit of a Riyadh hospital in Saudi Arabia after months of ‘suffering from broken arms, [a] skull fracture and head bruises’.
Al Arabiya news reported that the child was tortured with ‘whips and electric shocks’ while Saudi website Emirates 24/7 claims the scholar and his new wife used ‘sticks and hot metals’ to beat the girl.
