Ashamed of his children, a Palestinian 20 years kept them in his own dungeon

August 27 2008

A resident of Palestine for over 20 years kept his two mentally disabled children in zindan he personally dug out under their own home. Prisoners have discovered literally by accident - during the operation to combat drug trafficking.

The police found a man and a woman who has already exceeded 30 years in the dark and poorly ventilated basement in the village of Beit Awa in the West Bank.

According to Warden's father, he concluded his siblings in the home prison, to avoid the ridicule that he "gave birth to abnormal children." Police arrested the man and his son and daughter sent in a psychiatric hospital. The mother of children had died several years ago, and the man remarried and the second marriage has got two more children, reports Reuters.
