Woman dumps dead newborn in mosque

KUWAIT: The body of a newborn baby was found in a bag dumped at a Salmiya mosque, said security sources, noting that worshippers called the police after suspecting the bag. Commenting on the case, the interior ministry’s relations and security media department said that the baby had been dumped in a donation storage area in the women’s section of the mosque. Detectives later found that a 34-year-old citizen living in a nearby building had given birth a few days earlier to a child outside wedlock, and with the consent of her Kuwaiti boyfriend and the child’s father, who is in jail, got rid of the baby.
