ANKARA, Turkey – The murder of a Turkish woman by her ex-husband in front of her daughter sparked outrage on Friday (Aug 23) after a video of the attack was published online.

“I don’t want to die,” Emine Bulut, covered in blood, is heard screaming to her 10-year-old child.

Her tearful daughter says: “Mum, please don’t die.”

The 38-year-old was stabbed to death in a cafe on Aug 18 by her former husband in the central Anatolian city of Kirikkale, according to the Hurriyet newspaper.

Bulut, who divorced her killer four years ago, later died in hospital.

Fedai Baran told police he killed his former wife with a knife he always carried with him, Turkish broadcaster NTV reported.

Her name was a worldwide trending topic on Twitter and “I don’t want to die” (#olmekistemiyorum) was widely quoted on social media.https://twitter.com/hashtag/Turkey?src=hash&ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw

Dozens of protesters on Friday gathered in the capital Ankara to denounce the murder.

“We are ready for any form of action. We will not be silent, we are not afraid and we will not obey. We will keep on our struggle until no women are murdered anymore,” protester Elif Sanci told AFP.

Another protester, Ilke Isik, blamed the government for its failure to stop violence against women.

“Neither Emine nor any of our comrades must die. Emine’s cry ‘I don’t want to die’ is the cry of all of us,” she said.

Officials, including Justice Minister Abdulhamit Gul, were quick to condemn the murder after the video was published, along with celebrities and football clubs such as Besiktas.

“We expect the murderer to be punished in the most severe manner,” tweeted presidential spokesman Ibrahim Kalin.

The government said a team of psychologists was caring for the child.

Turkey has struggled to contain rising violence against women.

In the first six months of 2019, 214 women were killed by men, while 440 women were killed last year, according to the women’s rights group We Will Stop Femicide.

That was up from 409 women in 2017 and 121 in 2011.

While the government acknowledges the issue of violence against women, critics say not enough is being done to provide shelters and to address the broader problem of gender inequality which permeates society.

Turkey has ratified the Council of Europe’s 2011 Istanbul Convention – the world’s first binding instrument to prevent and combat violence against women – but activists say more needs to be done to put the laws into practice.

An eight-year-old girl in China has passed away from kidney cancer after spending 30 days in the intensive care unit (ICU)

According to Oriental Daily, the girl had complained of having a persistent stomach ache in January, which led her parents to take her to the hospital.

It was then that the doctor diagnosed her with kidney cancer.

Since she was two, her dad had brought home bubble tea and sweets for her everyday. Doctors believe that the girl had suffered as a result of her diet.

She had grown chubby over the years. However, in January, she suddenly lost a tremendous amount of weight. 

It was only after she had complained about her stomach ache that the father took her to the hospital.

It was then that her father broke down in tears and blamed himself for causing his daughter’s illness

“It was all my fault, I harmed my child. She was still so small, it’s all my fault!” he said, according to Oriental Daily.

Unfortunately, despite doctors’ best efforts, the girl passed away after being in ICU for 30 days.

On Thursday afternoon at the one-floor house of Nguyễn Thị Liên’s family in Nghệ An Province’s Nghi Lộc District, things were a little more crowded than usual.

Relatives and neighbours were packed in, as this was the day a very special person would return home.

For 24 years Liên had not seen her daughter Lê Thị Lan after she had been trafficked to China.

The weather outside may have been scorching hot, but nobody was leaving. This was a special day, a day to remember.

Lan hardly had chance to get out of the car before her mother held her tight. This time, she didn’t want to let go.

“I thought that I would never see her again,” 69-year-old Liên said as tears rolled down her cheek.

“I couldn’t sleep last night because I kept thinking of the moment my daughter come back,” she said.

“My family want to express our sincere thanks to the media who have helped spread news about my daughter that lead to the reunion.”

Nguyễn Thị Thu, Liên’s neighbour, said she and other residents in the locality thought she was no longer alive.

“We couldn’t believe that Lan would return home. Everyone is very happy and congratulating Lan’s family,” she said.

Being the eldest child in a poor family of six children, when she was 19, Lan went to work as hired labour in Nghĩa Đàn (another district in Nghệ An Province) to support the family.

But she was tricked and taken to neighbouring Thanh Hóa Province before transported to China’s Guangxi Province and sold to a 65-year-old man for VNĐ7 million (S$410).

After 13 years living together with him, Lan had four children with that man, three daughters and a son.

During that time, Lan was regularly beaten and abused by her husband. She tried to flee many time but did not succeed. She even locked up in a dark room.

She was given drugs so that she gradually loss her memory.

Then, Lan was sold to another man, who she has been living for 11 years now.

This man, who is 43 years, treated her very well.

Two years ago, Lan asked her husband to allow her to return hometown in Việt Nam. Her husband accepted and even gave her some money but she was tricked out of her cash and never made it home.

Early in July, Lan met a Vietnamese woman who was living in China. This proved to be a turning point as that woman, from Hòa Bình Province, helped uploaded a video of Lan on Facebook with the hope that she could contact with her family.

The video was widely shared and seen by Đặng Thị Thảo, Lan’s sister-in-law.

Although the woman spoke Vietnamese not fluently, she still remembered the names of her parents, her hometown and expresses her desire to return to her family, Thảo recalled.

“At first I did not recognise her, but when I heard she talk about the home address, the names of parents, sisters and brothers, I knew it was my sister-in-law,” she said.

Once it was confirmed that the woman in the video was Lan, the family reached out and helped Lan recover her memory.

The family has reported the incident to the police with the hope that authorities would do their best to bring Lan back to Việt Nam as soon as possible.

“We persistently encouraged and set up a contact group between the family, the police and Lan. Gradually, Lan trusted the Vietnamese agency and the Chinese authorities.”

Only then, could we only bring Lan back home,” he said.

Nghệ An police and authorities were trying to find and support victims returning to their homeland, he said.

Regarding to Lan’s case, the provincial police department would collect documents and verify her testimony to continue the investigation.

Statistics from the criminal police division showed between 12-14 human trafficking cases occurred in the province each year. About 90 per cent of victims were trafficking to China and forced to be sex workers or told to marry foreign men.

From November 2015 to April 2018, 34 human trafficking cases were detected resulting in the arrest of 57 suspects.

Tragedy struck a Cambodian farmer in the form of his daughter’s death when she unknowingly wandered into the family’s crocodile farm and fell into the enclosure on Monday (July 1).

According to media reports, the two-year-old victim was identified as Rom Roath Neary and under the care of her mother, Nay Is, 32.

Her mother is said to have been busy with her newborn and did not notice her daughter wandering off.

Upon returning home at 10am, the farmer, 35-year-old Min Min, began searching for the missing child and made a grisly find in the crocodile enclosure.

He found the reptiles fighting over his daughter’s remains in the enclosure. All that was left was a skull which was stripped of flesh.

Videos of Min retrieving the skull and a picture of a grieving Nay crying over the remains have surfaced over the internet.

Cambodian police have also confirmed the incident and investigations are ongoing.

Siem Reap’s deputy police chief, captain Chem Chamnan, told Khmer Times: “Her father found only her skull in the crocodile enclosure, where she was killed by the crocodiles.”

Officers explained that Rom had left the house to play on the land around the crocodile farm which was located behind the house.

The family had also erected a three-metre tall fence around the enclosure but children who were small enough could still fit through the gaps, said police lieutenant Och Sophen.

Cambodian families usually breed crocodiles for their meat and leather, especially in the Siem Reap province.

Hence, local authorities have urged families to take extra care to keep their children away from the animals.

A dad in China started wearing a clown suit and selling balloons on the streets to earn money for his two-year-old daughter’s growing medical bills.

Tu Xiancheng from Zhengzhou turned to this life after his daughter sustained severe brain injuries in Oct 2018.

According to reports, his daughter hit the back of her head after falling from the bed. 

She had bleeding in the brain and was later diagnosed with cerebral palsy. The child also became partially paralysed and blind.

Doctors told Tu that his daughter needed long-term rehabilitation, which meant hefty medical bills. 

And he cannot afford to pay for them.

Although his family is not well off, Tu has already spent 200,000 yuan (S$40,000) on his daughter’s medical treatment since the accident. 

Unfortunately, Tu has a health problem himself — ankylosing spondylitis — a form of arthritis affecting the spine. 

When he saw his daughter suffering, the man decided to forego his own treatment so she could get medical help.

The pain prevents him from doing manual labour, so Tu thought of selling balloons on the streets. 

To help ease the family’s financial burden, a fundraiser has been set up by 9958 Child Emergency Centre and charity Chinese Children Association on Weibo.

The campaign targets to raise 500,000 yuan, and so far, members of the public have donated over 92,000 yuan. 

Over the months, Tu’s friends and family members asked him to give up caring for his daughter, saying she is a “lost cause”.

But the desperate dad refused to listen to them, saying that he will not give up on his daughter as long as he is alive.

According to Astro Awani, a 23-year-old father, identified as MS, was recently arrested for allegedly abusing his 3-month-old baby to death.

MS was arrested in West Jakarta, Indonesia. He is believed to have been physically abusing his biological daughter since she was about 1 month old.

Kebon District Police Cheif Jeruk AKP Erick Sitepu was quoted as saying,

“Based on the suspect’s explanation, this was not the first time he has harmed the child as he has been abusing her since she was one and a half months old, during which time the baby’s leg and hips were broken.”

His wife, SK, once brought the child to a clinic for a medical check-up without her husband’s knowledge and found that several of her bones had been broken. However, once MS found out about the doctor’s diagnosis, he scolded her and convinced SK that the baby suffered those injuries due to her mother’s carelessness.

The 3-month-old passed away on 27th April under her father’s care while SK went out to the market that morning. SK’s visually-impaired mother, 55-year-old Jumiah, was also at home with MS and the baby.

According to the Jakarta Postpolice believe the motive behind the brutal abuse was that the father was ashamed that his child was conceived out of wedlock. During the pregnancy, MS even reportedly tried to convince SK to abort their child, but she refused. The police chief added,

“Investigators also tried to find photos of the victim (the child) and the suspect, but it turned out that he hated her so much that he did not want to be photographed with her.”

Jumiah reportedly heard the baby making regurgitating sounds as if she was about to throw up. She then woke a sleeping MS up and told him to pick up the child. Erik Sitepu continued,

“After she left [the room], the baby was assaulted by the suspect. The baby was bitten on the left side of the face and punched in the face, causing injury to the baby’s nose and lips.”

The baby’s father reportedly told the police that he punched the baby twice until her forehead and nose began to bleed. He also pulled his daughter’s right hand and left arm as well as her legs until they made a popping sound.

“After the assault, the baby was still alive, and the mother saw that she was still breathing but limp. She asked the suspect why the baby was like that, to which he said she had choked on something.”

Jumiah reportedly heard noises as it happened but did not think anything was out of the ordinary.

SK and MS then took their baby to a nearby health centre, where she was declared dead on arrival. When the parents tried asking for a death certificate, the clinic refused to issue one as the baby’s death appeared to be due to unnatural causes. The family later buried their child near their home.

Meanwhile, a nurse at the health centre filed a police report regarding the baby’s death, which led to the father’s arrest on 1st May. MS also tested positive for methamphetamine and has reportedly been using the drug since 2017. 

MS has been charged under the Criminal Code and Law No. 35/2014 on child protection. If he is found guilty, he could face up to 20 years in prison. SK, in a statement to the Jakarta Tribune, said that she had “given up” on her husband and asked for the courts to come down on him heavily “if the death sentence is necessary.

Footage of a mother kicking her three-year-old daughter has gone viral on Chinese social media, sparking outcry online.

The video was shot on Monday in Hangzhou, East China’s Zhejiang province, and began going viral Wednesday.

The daughter has been revealed to be Niuniu, a well-known child model, who was kicked because she was “too tired to perform”.

The video has been viewed tens of millions of times, with many leaving comments criticising Niuniu’s mother for “abusing” her daughter and using her “as a tool to make money”.

The mother on Monday afternoon issued an apology on Twitter-like platform Sina Weibo and defended herself in several media interviews.

Her post on Sina Weibo said that Niuniu is her beloved daughter and that she had absolutely no intention of hurting or abusing her.

She also told Beijing News: “My husband has a job; our family does not rely on Niuniu to make a living.”

“It was getting dark at that time and Niuniu was about to run out to the street, so my actions were out of worry for her,” she said.

Most netizens, however, were not convinced, with one saying, “There is no street in front of Niuniu but just a wall.”

Two more clips later circulated online and exacerbated the situation.

One shot in March shows Niuniu’s mum beating her with a hanger and shouting, “Concentrate your energy”.

This video was allegedly filmed at around 10 pm, when Niuniu had already worked for most of the day.

Another clip shows Niuniu shocked by her mother’s sudden strike to her hand.

Many netizens have said that the viral videos show the harmful conditions that child models experience, and have asked for more care for the girl’s psychical and mental health.

More than 110 children’s clothing shops on Taobao, a Chinese online shopping platform, have united together to call for better regulation of the child modelling industry and greater protection for child models.
