A Saudi man suffering from infertility went to an orphanage in the Gulf Kingdom and adopted a five-year-old boy after assuring his guardians he would look after him.

A few months later, the boy died in hospital after he was tortured by his new father.

The 33-year-old Saudi, who is married, confessed to police that he beat up and tortured the boy but claimed he only wanted to treat his involuntary urination.

“The boy was admitted to hospital in Riyadh, suffering from burns and bruises all over his body and examination showed he was burned and tortured…doctors tried hard to save him but he died later,” Okaz daily said.
