March 22, 2011

GAZA CITY (Ma’an) — A five-year-old boy died Monday in the Gaza Strip, 10 days after he was attacked in the coastal enclave.

Mustapha Ahmad Sehwel’s parents said he went to buy fuel with his brothers when unidentified attackers poured fuel on his trousers and set fire to him.

His brothers put the fire out as quickly as they could, but the boy sustained serious burns and developed blood poisoning from the wounds, the family said.

Mustapha’s parents said police were investigating the incident but had not yet detained any suspects.
