Heartbreaking photos were uploaded to the Internet, showing horrific bruises a young girl suffered after being beaten by her father.

The 5-year-old girl in Egypt was brutally beaten to death by her father because she did not do her homework.

Doctors at the Boulaq Ad Dakrour Hospital called police in Giza, south of Cairo after the girl was admitted with severe injuries.

Police said that the girl had bruises all over her body, including her head and chest.

Photos that were uploaded to the Internet, show the girl’s hands and feet swollen and purple.

During the investigation, the police discovered that it was the child’s father who had beat her with a plastic pipe for not doing homework.

The child succumbed to her injuries and died at the hospital.

The father was arrested after confessing to the crime. He said he never intended to kill his own daughter.
