The newborn girl has been named Luz Milagros, or “Miracle Light.” She was in critical but improving condition Wednesday in the same hospital where the staff pronounced her stillborn April 3.
The case became public Tuesday when the deputy provincial health minister announced that five medical professionals involved have been suspended pending an official investigation.
Mother Analia Bouguet told the TeleNoticias TV channel in an interview Tuesday night that she still just has a death certificate, not a birth certificate. A medical malpractice suit is planned.
Suspected U.S. airstrike kills 12 terrorists
SANAA — A suspected U.S. airstrike has killed at least 12 al Qaeda terrorists traveling in a military vehicle in the country’s embattled south, Yemeni military officials said Wednesday.
The vehicle, which was stolen from an army post in recent days, was parked when it was hit Wednesday south of the town of Lawder in Abyan province, they said.
Residents said the vehicle took a direct hit, leaving it destroyed with bodies strewn nearby.
The area has seen heavy fighting between government forces and militants in the past three days.
U.S. officials could not immediately be reached for comment. U.S. drones have targeted al Qaeda leaders in Yemen in the past.
President reassures Jews of their value to society
TUNIS — Tunisia’s president reassured his nation’s Jews of their place in society Wednesday in a ceremony marking the 10th anniversary of an al Qaeda truck bomb at a synagogue on the island of Djerba that killed 21 people.
President Moncef Marzouki flew to the island accompanied by Tunisia’s grand rabbi, Haim Bitan, to lay a wreath and observe a moment of silence to remember the victims of the truck bombing, which included 14 German and two French tourists.
“All forms of discrimination against Jews, assaults on their lives, possessions or religion are forbidden,” he said in a speech inside the synagogue, as he unveiled a plaque.
