  1. This is a very high level of wickedness. My the child soul rest in peace. Also the evil woman that did this act should be seriously punished by the law

  2. Humans are too wicked….may the soul of the boy rest in perfect peace.
    May that would suffer slowly.
    May God grant the Fa’iza the grace to bear her loss.
