Afghan beat baby 'because she's a girl'

Also raped, kicked, punched wife, who he married when she was 15

(ANSA) - Milan, November 6 - A 30-year-old Afghan man has been sentenced by a Milan court to three years and 8 months in jail for "slapping" his daughter when she was just over a year old.
    He reportedly beat her because she is a female and not a male as he wanted. He also subjected his wife - who he married when she was 15 in Pakistan - to violence, including by kicking, punching, belting and raping her. The woman and her daughter are now in the care of social services.
