Man kills mom after she pardoned him

A Saudi man in his 40s used his machine gun to kill his mother a few weeks after she pardoned him in court where he was charged of abusing her.

“Instead of thanking his mother, he killed her,” the Arabic language daily ‘Sada’ said, adding that the killer had been jailed before on charges of possessing drugs.

'Sada' said police arrested the man just hours after he shot his elderly mother at her house in the capital Riyadh this week.
