Strangled baby found at airport.

Police say woman killed her newborn, then boarded plane to Africa

Dubai Police are investigating a case in cooperation with Interpol of a woman who strangled her new-born child and dumped him in the airport's bathroom.

Police sources confirmed that the suspect, who is from an African country, strangled her newborn child which she had given birth to in Dubai International Airport's bathroom.

She then dumped the child in the trash and boarded a plane back to her country.

A police source said the woman had been identified through the CCTV cameras in the airport. Dubai Police have already requested the arrest of the suspect in the undisclosed country in Africa.

The CCTV cameras revealed that the woman boarded her plane minutes after murdering the new-born baby during early Thursday morning.

The newborn was discovered by a cleaner who received a complaint from a passenger who had found an excessive amount of blood in the bathroom.

The newborn was found in a plastic bag and tied with the umbilical cord in a garbage bin.
