Woman to face Aberdeen child attack trial

A woman is to stand trial accused of attacking an eight-month-old girl in Aberdeen.

Syeda Begum, 28, is alleged to have repeatedly shaken the child to her severe injury, permanent impairment and danger of life at a property in the city on New Year's Day last year.

Frances Connor, defending, pled not guilty on her behalf at the High Court in Glasgow.

Judge Lord Mulholland set a trial due to begin in Aberdeen in August.
