Pregnant woman jumps from four-storey building in Herat

The woman who has severely hurt herself is now in Herat Regional Hospital

In an attempt of suicide, a pregnant woman has jumped from a four-storey building in western Herat province of Afghanistan.

The woman who has severely hurt herself is now in Herat Regional Hospital.

Doctors say the baby had already died before the woman was brought to them.

In her initial investigation, the woman said she wanted to commit suicide due to domestic violence.

But she later changed her statement and told investigators that she took the decision because of the pressure she had from pregnancy.

Due to her opposing statements, police arrested her husband and the case is under further investigation.
