A six-year-old Saudi boy who went missing two days ago was found dead with a charred body after his rapist killed him and set him ablaze. One newspaper said the rapist is the boy’s neighbour.
Police had mounted a massive search campaign to find Mohammed Salim Al Azmi after his parents reported him missing for two days from his home in the northern town of Alqurayat.
“His body was found charred near a bridge east of the town,” the Saudi Arabic language daily Sharq said on Monday.
“Sources told the paper that police suspect a 35-year-old neighbour kidnapped the boy, raped him and then murdered him before setting him ablaze to get rid of the body.”
