VIDEO: Father canes his baby's sole for crying, 10 Oct 2014
A disturbing video has emerged from the Middle East, of a father who "disciplines" his baby as she screams in pain. And to make it worse, it would appear he is being encouraged to continue the beating in the background by the mother.
The video shows the father has taken a plastic hanger and positioned it around the baby’s feet, before he whacks the bottoms of her feet with a rod.
The video had originally been posted on the Arab version of al-Jazeera, by the father in the video, who lives in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. The father of the child complained that people shouldn’t judge him for “only educating her”, before he removed the video.
