  • September MGM: An online Bangladeshi newspaper published the headline in September 2010 that a six-year-old had died before circumcision. Sajjad Hossain Mimu was to be circumcised by a village doctor. He was given three injections of the local anesthetic lidocaine before the operation, whereupon the child became ill and lost consciousness. The father took his son to a hospital where the doctors pronounced Sajjad dead. They suspected that he had died of an overdose of the narcotic. The boy's father planned to file a complaint against the doctor who had fled shortly after the boy's death.[1]

  • August 07 MGM: Dead Franjo: penalty for female doctor reduced to 18 months, 1 boy (Franjo O.), 4 years
  • MGM: The son of Ramil Sadekov, the imam of the historic mosque in Moscow, Salikh Sadekow was only a month old. The imam had contacted the circumciser due to an advertising campaign, and the operation was carried out in the imam's apartment. At first, it seemed that the circumcision had been successful and uncomplicated, but Salikh's condition soon began to deteriorate rapidly. At 5am, parents noticed that their baby was breathing slower than usual. His fingers became cold and green. He died of blood loss before the ambulance arrived.[1]

Antiquity

The fact that circumcision on infants regularly led to deaths is shown by the fact that the Talmud of Babylon, Yebamoth 64b,[2] provides for when the first two (or three) sons have died after circumcision, subsequent sons no longer need to be circumcised.
