Six-Year-Old Boy Beheaded In Medina In Front Of Mother, Locals Suspect Sectarian Violence

Saudi Arabia does have very strict rules for its women, so much so that they cannot even step out without the supervision of a male relative, however, its children continue to remain unsafe. The recent murder of a six-year-old boy in the Islamic pilgrimage site of Medina has raised concerns over lack of public concern in the kingdom.

Zakaria Al-Jaber, around the age of six, was travelling with his mother in a taxi to the Prophet’s mosque. According to The Muslim Vibe, the taxi for some unknown reasons pulled over and then dragged the boy out of the car to a coffee shop.

This happened near the Al-Tilal neighbourhood. He smashed a glass bottle to obtain a piece of glass which he used to slit the throat of the boy. The mother and a policeman attempted to stop the attacker but all their efforts went in vain. The mother later collapsed out of trauma.
