A five-year old girl has been tortured to death by her mother's Egyptian husband and his brother in Al-Garaboulli city, some 60 km to the east of Tripoli.

Rahaf Ben Omer was severely beaten by the Egyptian stepfather Mohammed Yousif and his brother, who apparently lives with them in the same house. Police sources declared that the two men hanged Rahaf on an interior window and started beating her to death.

The sources said that the reason was so absurd, as the stepfather claimed that the little girl had peed on the mattress of his brother.

The stony-hearted men are now in custody, the sources added.
