An Ethiopian housemaid in Saudi Arabia waited for her Syrian employers to go to work in the morning went to the bed room of their 10-year-old girl and hit her head with an iron while asleep before stabbing her in the neck many times, leading to her death.
When the shocked father later asked the maid whey she killed the girl, she told him that she was told to do so by an “occult power for an offering.”
Israa was asleep in her bedroom at their apartment in the Saudi capital Riyadh when the maid attacked her while the girl’s parents were at work.
Israa was rushed to hospital by an ambulance called by a neighbor but she died on arrival after she lost much blood.
“The main waited for Israa to go to bed and attacked her. Police arrested her just after the murder but she is still refusing to make any statement,” Sabq daily said.
