A CHILDLESS Egyptian woman who sought help from a snake charmer died
when a fertility ritual backfired. Nureddin Asim, 29, told Sadiya Zaki
Suleiman, 37, who had been married for 11 years, that wrapping his
snake round her neck would help her become pregnant. It bit her ear
and killed her, police in southern Egypt said.
