A Saudi man sewed his mouth to demand dues from the government in compensation for leaving his home because of development plans in the Gulf Kingdom.
Yehya Al Kaabi told police that he decided to stitch his lips by himself after local authorities failed to honour their pledge and pay him all his dues.
Newspapers said police took Al Kaabi to the hospital in the southern province of Jazan but it was not clear if he will be paid his dues.
