A Saudi man returned home late night and rang the bell. When his wife opened the door, he aimed his gun and shot her.
The shocked wife limped away but he followed her and shot her again. The woman was still alive while her husband sat on the chair for nearly three hours watching her bleeding and writhing in pain.
Weeping and begging him to save her, his two sons, aged 4 and 6 years, rushed to their mother and tried to stop the bleeding as their father was still sat on the chair watching them. At dawn, he finally called the ambulance.
“The wife died on the way to hospital…police are interrogating the husband to know his motives for the crime,” Okaz daily said in a report from the western Saudi town of Taif.
