By Staff

Residents of a Saudi city woke up in the morning to be greeted with a body hanging from the building roof and police said later it was of a local teacher who apparently committed a suicide.

Police found the 47-year-old teacher dead after he apparently hanged himself overnight at his building in Nasr neighborhood in the central town of Madinah, Alhayat newspaper reported.

“He was suffering from difficult social and psychological conditions,” the paper said, quoting police chief Major Awad Al Sirhani.

“We are investigating the case but his relatives told us that he had suffered mentally over the past four and that they are convinced he had committed a suicide.”
