Leeds 'hit-and-run' leaves brother and sister critical


A two-year-old boy and his 10-year-old sister were critically injured when they were knocked down in a hit-and-run in Leeds.

Raham Saleem and his sister Sabam were hit by a Vauxhall Astra in Brudenell Road in the Hyde Park area on Saturday.

Police said Sabam had taken her brother to a shop and they were heading home when they were hit near the Makkah Masjid mosque at about 17:20 BST.

Both are in a critical condition after surgery at Leeds General Infirmary.
