According to emerging reports, a woman is due to appear in court today to be charged with the murder of a three-year-old boy in Dublin.
The woman, who was arrested yesterday in relation to Omar Omran's murder on Monday, will appear before the Criminal Courts of Justice this morning.
Omar was murdered in what is believed to have been a frenzied attack in an apartment in the Riverside complex in Poddle Park earlier this week.
The child was pronounced dead at the scene while the child's mother, Maha Al-Adheem, was transferred to St James Hospital that same evening.
Commenting on the development, a spokesperson for the Gardai said: "A woman in her early forties, who was arrested in relation to the homicide of an infant child that occurred on Monday evening 10th July, 2017, will appear before Criminal Courts of Justice, Court Number 3, this morning Thursday 13th July, at 10.30am."
