An Indonesian housemaid locked the four-year-old daughter of her Saudi employer in her room, then used an axe to cut the child’s head off. Rushing home from work after he was told about the incident, the father jumped several red lights, killing another driver and suffering serious injuries himself.
EmiratesThe girl’s mother had phoned her husband when she returned home and realized the maid’s door was locked and that her daughter was with the maid.
Her husband phoned the police and the civil defence then hurried for his house in the western town of Yanbu. On the way, he jumped the red lights and rammed into another car, killing its driver and suffering from serious injuries.
“Police and civil defense units arrived at the man’s house and smashed their way into the maid’s room,” the Arabic language daily Okaz said. “They were shocked at what they saw…the maid sat silent in the corner with a blood-stained axe in her hand while the little girl’s head was severed off her body.”
(Not that anything excuses such a heinous act, but Saudi employers’ horrendous abuse of female domestic help from Indonesia and the Philippines is well documented)
