A 17-year-old Egyptian girl caused the death of her mother and disabled brother after she burnt their house down as part of a Blue Whale game task on Friday, said a security official.
The police department in al-Balina received a call about a house that was on fire, said the official. The house was owned by Essmat Kamal, the girl’s father.
The 49-year-old mother, Shadia, and brother, Mohammed Essmat, were burnt alive and the third sibling, Taha Essmat, was left injured.
