Mother who beat and tortured her six-month-old twin girls on camera for money is arrested in Saudi Arabia after video clip sparks outcry.
After the clips went viral Saudi Arabian officials issued an appeal for information which led to the person who posted the videos being tracked down. He was identified as a Yemeni man called Mohanad Al Hashdi who revealed that the mother was a Somali woman living in Saudi Arabia who is married to another Yemeni man.
The couple had reportedly separated, leaving the woman in financial difficulties, and as a result she had taken the video and sent it to her husbands father in Yemen to warn him of the consequences for failing to ensure that she was paid money.
The worried grandfather had shared it with Al Hashdi who then put it online on YouTube in the hope that it would result in the babies being rescued.
Khalid Aba Khail then posted a social media message saying that the twins had been found in Jeddah and taken to hospital.
It is believed that the twins will now be returned to the family of the father.
