To steal her unborn child, gunmen cut a Mexican woman open


Authorities reported on Monday that a pregnant Mexican woman died after being slashed

open by two attackers who abducted her unborn child. 

According to a statement from the attorney general's office in the eastern state of Veracruz, the alleged culprits were detained while in custody of a baby. 

The suspects, a man and a woman, were charged with kidnapping and femicide and appeared before a magistrate on Monday. 

An official connected to the investigation told AFP on condition of anonymity that the woman attacker was unable to have children of her own, which is why they reportedly cut up the victim to extract the fetus.

According to family members who spoke to local media, the victim was enticed to her death via social media with the promise of clothes for her baby. This was the third case of its kind in recent years. 

According to official statistics, more than 3,700 women were killed in violent Mexico in 2021, with almost 1,000 of the killings being femicides.
