A Saudi husband, believed to be mentally ill, shot his wife before killing himself inside his car.

His two little daughters suffocated to death inside the car which he had locked before committing the crime.

Police said the man had taken his wife and two daughters aged 2 and 3 years, to a ride by car south of the western Saudi port of Al Qunfudah before stopping in a desert area nearly one km off the road.

He then locked the car, pulled a gun and shot his wife before aiming the gun at his head and firing. His two daughters, who were in the back seat, died of asphyxia.

“A man who happened to be passing through that area found the car and saw four bodies inside…he phoned the police,” Okaz daily said.
