Unfaithful mum abandoned stillborn baby outside mosque
A NEWLYWED abandoned her stillborn baby outside a mosque because she did not want her husband to know she had given birth to another man's child.
Nur Yazid told police she did not realise she was pregnant when she delivered the baby boy at their Shelton home while her husband was working nights at Asda.
When the child showed no signs of life, the 27-year-old wrapped him in an old T-shirt and newspaper and put him in a carrier bag.
She dumped him outside the Makki Masjid Mosque, in Shelton, just after midnight on March 6 with £20 and a note saying "Please help bury him", and the Arabic word for "thank you".

Police were called 10 hours later when the baby – who was later named Ali Abdullah – was discovered by an Iman at the mosque.
Mrs Yazid, of Crowther Street, was traced after her husband's fingerprints were found on the newspaper wrapped around Ali.
An inquest heard yesterday that the couple, who came from Malaysia, had married in October last year after a long relationship.
Mrs Yazid's husband, Adli Daut, had already been living in Stoke-on-Trent as he was studying electrical engineering at Staffordshire University. Mrs Yazid arrived to live with her 29-year-old husband in December.
The inquest heard Mrs Yazid knew the baby was not her husband's because they had been living apart before their wedding.
It is understood the couple – who did not attend the inquest – flew back to Malaysia in September.
They were arrested three weeks after the baby was found.
But no charges were brought because the baby was stillborn.
Detective Constable Kirsty Burton, who interviewed the couple, said: "She said she didn't know she was pregnant and thought she had severe period cramps.
"She went to the toilet because her stomach was hurting. It was so painful she sat on the bathroom floor, and then there was a baby on the floor. She thought he was dead, he wasn't moving and made no noise. She said he was blue.
"She said she was panicking because she didn't want her husband to find out. She wanted to take him to someone who could take care of him.
"She didn't know how to process a funeral and knew there was a mosque nearby, so she decided to leave him there."
She later told police the umbilical cord was wrapped around the baby's neck.
North Staffordshire coroner Ian Smith ruled that Ali had been stillborn.
