Man slits throat in suicide


A Saudi man apparently suffering from depression waited for his family to visit neighbours, picked a large kitchen knife and slit his throat, a newspaper in the Gulf kingdom said on Sunday.

The man, in his 50s, was found lying dead in a pool of blood at his house in the central town of Makkah, 'Al Madina' said.

Forensic examination showed the unnamed man slashed his neck veins and bled to death inside his room, the paper said.

“We are investigating the incident to ensure no criminal act is involved,” said police spokesman major Abdul Mohsen Miman.

Almadina quoted relatives as saying the man had suffered from psychological stress and depression before his death.
