Dubai teacher asks female student to send him naked photos of her

DUBAI: A Dubai school teacher is under investigation after confessing to police that he sent WhatsApp messages to an 11-year-old female student asking her to send him naked photographs of herself.
Concerns were first raised when the girl told classmates and teachers that she wanted to kill herself.
The student’s mother also contacted the school in May raising concerns about changes in her daughter’s behavior, UAE daily Gulf News reported.
“I started monitoring my daughter and noticed she was under some kind of pressure and always complained about pain in her body. Finally on July 5, we discovered that her computer teacher was contacting her on her WhatsApp after school hours and sending inappropriate messages and posts,” she told investigators.
The mother said she did not know if her daughter had suffered any form of physical molestation.
Police later arrested the 46-year-old male teacher who confessed to sending the messages asking the girl to send nude photographs of her to him.
He told investigators that he had given his phone number to students, including the girl, to discuss a project.
Dubai Public Prosecution is still investigating the allegations.

Egyptian security forces kill 16 suspected militants

  • Egyptian security forces killed 16 suspected militants in two separate raids in the city of Arish in North Sinai
  • The two sides were involved in exchanges of fire

CAIRO: Egyptian security forces killed 16 suspected militants in two separate raids in the city of Arish in North Sinai, state media said on Tuesday.
The report came the day after an explosion in central Cairo killed three policemen.
Ten suspected militants were killed in the Obeidat district of Arish and another six were killed in the Abu Eita district of the city, state-run Al Ahram said.
An undisclosed quantity of weapons, ammunition and explosives were found with the six in Abu Eita.
The two sides exchanged gunfire, it said without elaborating. It made no mention of any security forces casualties.
The suspected militants’ bodies were taken to several hospitals in the city of Ismailia to be examined and identified, security and medical sources said.
Egypt has been fighting an extremist insurgency since 2013, mostly concentrated in North Sinai.
