More than thirteen thousand babies in Scotland could be at risk because their parents are not getting enough support. This is an international version of the news that may have been edited for rights reasons.
French woman who admitted killing three of her own babies was sentenced on Thursday to eight years in jail. Veronique Courjault had faced a possible life sentence after she admitted to smothering two baby boys born in secret at her expat home in South Korea in 2002 and 2003, and a third child born in France in 1999. Since she has served almost three years in pre-trial detention, Courjault could be eligible for parole under French law in as little as a year, her lawyers said.
