A Saudi man with three wives and 17 children was driving impatiently towards the capital Riyadh after a day absence from his large family when he spotted a man standing at the road shaking in the cold weather.
Saleh Al Anzi stopped his car after he saw the man, an Egyptian, hailing for a lift. He agreed to give him a lift as the Egyptian said he was heading for Riyadh.
“The Egyptian waited until it became dark and lunged at Anzi…he threatened him with a gun and put his hands around his neck and strangled him…he then stopped the car, dumped his body in the desert and drove away after taking the victim‘s money and mobile phone,” the Saudi Arabic language daily Ajel said.
It quoted his cousin Abdullah Al Anzi as saying the incident took place just outside Riyadh on Monday evening and that body was found by a jogger.
After intensive investigation, police identified the killer and raided an apartment where he was believed to be hiding.
“He tried to use the gun but police quickly overpowered him….I was with my cousin’s family who all were crying when police rang us and said they arrested the murderer,” Abdullah said.
Under Islamic law in Saudi Arabia, a killer is executed but can walk free if pardoned by the victim’s relative in return for blood money.
