A 28-year-old Ethiopian woman killed three of her five daughters by drowning them in a water tank at her house in the Gulf Kingdom, police said on Wednesday.
The unnamed woman threw the three girls aged between six and eight years in the ground water tank at her house in the Western Red Sea port of Jeddah.
When their father returned home from work, his sobbing 11-year-old daughter who had fled home rushed to him outside the house and told him that her mother has thrown her sisters in the water tank and locked its cover.
“Police arrested the woman for murdering three daughters…her husband said she was suffering from mental problems and get nervous fits sometimes,” the Saudi Arabic language daily Sada said.
