Syrian hurls kids out window ‘because wife wants freedom’

The trial begins in Bonn this week of a Syrian man who threw his three children from a first-floor window, allegedly because he disliked his wife’s desire to enjoy the same freedoms as German women, as reported by The Local.de.

Prosecutors say the suspect in the Lohmar incident admitted to the crime saying it stemmed from his wife who “in Germany no longer wished to accept the roles they had at home, and did not want to put up with everything he wanted any more”.  (Express)

The man, who came to Germany from Syria in 2014 by way of Turkey, France and Bulgaria before being joined by his family, has admitted the attack to police. (Russia Today)
