Children found dead in Giza, organ trade possibility excluded

Tue, Jul. 10, 2018
CAIRO – 10 July 2018: Overwhelmed by horror and wrath, some people in Giza’s Marioteya said they have recognized some stray dogs gathering around trash bags this morning, to find later the bags packed with three dead children all under 5 years old.

Organ trade which dominated Egyptian people’s minds especially over the past few years has caused many people to think that the children were victimized by organ trafficking gangs. The youngest of the three children was only one and a half years old, according to the preliminary forensic report.

The bodies were badly decomposed which indicates that the children died few days ago, according to security investigations. The forensic report proved that the children were burnt and have suffocated to death, suggesting that they were trapped in a place where a fire broke out.

Refuting Organ trafficking possibility, a security source said that the body of one of the three children was found to be without any holes, adding that perhaps the holes found in the other two victims’ bodies were caused by the stray dogs or any other factors.

A number of forensic pathologists said they have collected DNA samples, to compare them with that of the families whose children were reported lost. The group said that the final report would be issued within two weeks.

A committee of many high-ranking security officers was formed to investigate the mysterious death of the three children, hear the eyewitnesses, and check the surveillance cameras positioned near the scene.
