RIYADH: An Ethiopian has been arrested for stabbing to death a fellow national after traveling all the way from his home country explicitly to murder him in an act of revenge, police have said.
The alleged killer, according to police, had already killed his victim’s brother in Ethiopia before entering the Kingdom. “Officers were called to a site in the Manfouha District of the capital where they found a man with fatal stab wounds lying in a pool of blood,” said Riyadh Police spokesman Nasser Al-Qahtani. “They were told that a group of persons had been involved in a fight, with some of them receiving injuries.”
Investigators soon identified and located the suspected culprit, he said. He was arrested along with a number of other individuals involved in the fight and eight women found to be living in the Kingdom illegally.
