Refugee father charged with infant molestation


An Afghan man will appear in court on the eastern Aegean island of Chios on Tuesday on charges of sexually abusing his 11-month-old baby.

According to reports, the man, who lived at the VIAL refugee camp, molested the baby during a visit to the apartment where his wife was staying with the infant.

The apartment in the center of Chios town was among others provided by the UN Refugee Agency.

The child was taken to Chios hospital, where doctors identified signs of rape.
