Man shoots dead alleged “sorcerer”

By Staff

A Saudi man fired seven rounds of his pistol to kill an Arab expatriate in the Gulf Kingdom for practicing sorcery on his family, the Arabic language daily Alriyadh said on Thursday.

The 36-year-old Saudi fired the seven bullets at different parts of the man’s body in the southern town of Abha, killing him instantly.

“He then handed himself over to the police and told them he did so because the man was a sorcerer who tried to cast a magic spell on him and his wife,” the paper said.
