article imageSaudi sisters who beheaded brother say he molested them

By Katerina Nikolas     Nov 25, 2011 in World
Four Saudi sisters who were arrested over allegations of murdering their brother by beheading him have confessed to the crime. In their defence they say they were repeatedly molested by their brother.
On Tuesday evening the body of a 20-year-old Saudi man was discovered in the family home in Hafr Al-Batin. The unnamed victim had been attacked with knives and beheaded. The Saudi Gazette reported that police spokesman Ziyad Al-Ruqaiti said “The father entered the house and found his 20-year-old son’s body and his decapitated head.” He also found his four daughters missing from the home.
The four sisters were soon found at a local house where they had allegedly fled after murdering their brother. They were soon arrested and accused of the murder. The four women, aged between 20 and 40, reportedly may have kicked the severed head around like a football, according to Trifter.
Emirates 247 has now reported that the sisters have confessed to the grisly murder but explained their motives to the police. Police sources said that the victim was accused by his killers of repeatedly molesting the four women. He would not stop, fuelled on by his drug addiction.
If the Saudi court does not take the mitigating circumstances of molestation into account, then the sisters will face the same punishment of beheading which they meted out to their tormentor.
