Baby born in traffic jam as leader drives by 寶寶在讓領袖通行而造成的塞車中出世


A Pakistani woman gave birth to a baby girl in an auto-rickshaw stuck in a traffic jam when police closed roads to let President Asif Ali Zardari’s motorcade drive by.


The woman was being driven to hospital in the city of Quetta on Thursday evening when police blocked roads for Zardari and his convoy to pass.


"We pleaded with the policemen as it was an emergency but they refused citing orders that no one should be allowed to move until the president passed," the woman’s brother, Mohammad Zafar, told reporters.


"It’s outrageous. People suffer unduly whenever a top government official moves," he said.


Security for government leaders is tight in Pakistan where Islamist militants have carried out numerous bomb attacks. Former president Pervez Musharraf survived two bomb attacks on his convoy.
