Dead baby said to be found on Qatar Airways plane

Premature baby reportedly found in a toilet on flight from Doha to Indonesia

The body of a newborn baby was found in the toilet of a Qatar Airways plane on Sunday after it arrived in Indonesia from Doha, according to local media reports.

Cleaning staff found the foetus – reportedly born prematurely at between five and seven months – wrapped in tissue paper and called police, who have taken a female Indonesian passenger in to a police hospital in Jakarta for medical check-ups.

The woman will reportedly be brought in for questioning if the doctor’s examination shows she is fit.

It is not yet clear if she will face criminal charges, it was said.
