Man sentenced to death for manslaughter

A criminal court in Abu Dhabi sentenced an Asian construction worker to death for murdering an Arab expatriate after the victim’s relatives refused to pardon the killer, the semi official newspaper Alittihad reported on Wednesday.

After a heated argument, the Asian crane driver clubbed the Arab man in his head with a metal object, killing him instantly, it said.
“The court sentenced the Asian to death after the victim’s relatives rejected (diya) blood money,” the paper added without making clear if the defendant would appeal the verdict.
