Thieves stopped a Filipino transport company driver in Saudi Arabia and shot him in the ear before making away with his money and the shipment.
The Filipino was on his way to deliver a new shipment in the southern rugged town of Abha when he was stopped by armed men.
“They shot him in the ear…the bullet penetrated the lower part of his ear and he was taken to hospital,” Okaz newspaper said.
It quoted police as saying it was the third armed robbery in the area in just a few months.
