ALBAWABA - An Egyptian man strangled his three-year-old daughter to death when she started crying.
In an attempt to portray it as an accident, the 29-year-old man told police that he covered his daughter's mouth with his hand to silence her, but that she died as a result.
He said that he later took a shuttle taxi service along with his daughter, carrying her on his shoulder "as if she was asleep." He said that he thought that her heart was still beating, so he brought her juice and sought to give it to her, but she was not moving. He thought that she had passed out.
The perpetrator said that when he determined that his daughter passed away, he deserted her near a building in the city of Alexandria in northern Egypt.
Previously, the Egyptian police received a report stating that there was a dead girl covered in a blanket. The Egyptian Public Prosecution began probing the incident.
Police reports show that the perpetrator was previously accused of several misdemeanors, the last of which was harassment.
