Girl is abducted for second time by her father in Egypt

A mother from Whitefield, Greater Manchester, is fighting to get her daughter back after she was abducted for a second time.

Leila Sabra, who has been living in Cairo, Egypt, since being awarded full custody of A'ishah, 5, by courts there in 2009, said the girl's father had refused to return her after an access visit almost three months ago.

Ms Sabra told BBC Radio 5 live's Victoria Derbyshire about her efforts to get her daughter back and her MP Ivan Lewis added that he would help her.
