The man attacked the family of his ex-wife with a machine gun, killing his former mother in law and seriously injuring his ex-wife and her sister before ending his own life with a knife. The incident triggered a fire at the two-level house in the western Red Sea port of Jeddah, Saudi Arabia’s second largest city.
