Arrest made in Jeddah kidnap, murder case

Police in Saudi Arabia have arrested a man on suspicion of murdering a woman and throwing her corpse out into the street a month ago, English language Saudi Gazette reported.

The 28-year old Saudi woman, a student who had been missing for a month, was found dead in Jeddah’s Samer neighbourhood. She had suffered bruises all over her body and had been hit over the head with a steel tool, police in the Red Sea port city said.

Police said they had arrested a former teacher in connection with the case, who had originally been accused by the victim’s family when the missing person’s report was first filed.

Speculation on social media and news websites in the region had named Prince Khalid Bin Saad as a suspect, which the prince strongly refuted via his Twitter account.
