Sana’a, Yemen - A three-year-old Yemeni girl has been admitted to intensive care with severe bleeding after allegedly being raped by her father, the September.net news website reported on Monday.

The little girl was unconscious when she arrived at Al-Thawra hospital in Sana’a, and suffered a vaginal rupture which caused the severe bleeding, the website linked to the Defence Ministry said.

It did not say when the assault happened.

The girl's uncle has demanded his brother be executed for the alleged crime, saying that the whole family “disowns” the man for the “unforgivable heinous crime”, according to September.net.

The unnamed man warned that the family is ready to execute the father if authorities “do not act swiftly”.
