The mutilated remains of three children have been found dumped on the side of a Cairo road wrapped in black garbage bags on Tuesday, according to local reports.
The grisly discovery was made by a woman who saw dogs scavenging among what she thought was dumped garbage as she walked to work in the Marioteya district of greater Cairo - it was only when she got closer that she saw a baby’s head.
Preliminary investigations have revealed that the bodies belonged to a one-year-old baby, and two children aged three and five.
It is not clear how the children died, although local speculation suggested they might have suffered stab wounds – although this was not confirmed by police.
