Saudi female cop dies after being slapped during fight

By Staff

A Saudi policewoman died after she was slapped by a colleague during a fight.

Examinations showed she had high blood pressure at the time, on duty.

The policewoman has just come in for a night shift at the police station in the western Saudi town of Makkah when she had an argument with another police woman.

“The other police woman slapped her. She was rushed to hospital but died later. Doctors said she died after she suffered from high blood pressure and exhaustion,” the Arabic language daily ‘Makka’ said.

It said the other cop remained in custody, but that a forensic report exonerated her from responsibility for her colleague’s death.

Cop jailed 10 years for smuggling drugs to prisoners

A Saudi court sentenced a local prison guard to 10 years in jail and ordered him lashed 600 times after he was convicted of smuggling drugs to inmates.

The policeman was caught red handed by other prison guards when he handed a cigarette box to an inmate found to be containing drugs.

The court in the western town of Madinah also decided to sack the guard immediately, according to the Arabic language daily ‘Al Hayat’.
