Thumbs down Couple caught trying to smuggle baby in their hand luggage

Telegraph: Couple caught trying to smuggle baby in their hand luggage
I know people will try all sorts of things...but this is crazy!! Would it have been that difficult to get your baby a passport and visa??

The five-month-old infant was discovered by security teams at Sharjah Airport during routine arrival screenings when the bag passed through an X-ray machine, according to local newspaper reports.

Officials were astonished to see the outline of the child's body on their monitors and alerted police, who arrested the couple and charged them with endangering the babyís life.

The child reportedly did not have a passport or visa for the United Arab Emirates.

Journalist steals copy from Gulf News.......

Great job being a DT journalist, browse the web, steal a story, put your name on it (with your investigative journalist profile photo), get paid.....
