Hamzah Khan: sorrow and blame go hand in hand when a child is killed | Zoe Williams

PUBLISHED October 4, 2013

When a child dies at the hands of a parent, particularly in one's own country, it raises feelings that are unique. Pity and sorrow you would feel for anyone, whether they were killed by relative or a tsunami. An abused child sends you into endless hypothesising, or rather, wishing; if only x agency had noticed y; if only this report had got under the nose of that person; if only someone had spoken to the child.
