Insecticide kills 3 kids in Saudi

Three Saudi children aged below six years died after inhaling insecticide sprayed by an Ethiopian tenant in the upper floor in the Gulf Kingdom. Their parents were also admitted to hospital in a serious condition.

Police arrested the Ethiopian man for spraying what they believe was a toxic substance in his apartment before leaving during the day.

“The parents were rushed to hospital in serious condition while one of their son was in critical condition…three other sons aged below six years died,” the Arabic language daily Kabar said in a report from the capital Riyadh.
