Male doctor helps Saudi woman deliver baby – and is then shot by husband

A Jordanian Doctor who helped deliver a baby at a Saudi hospital was shot by the woman’s husband who was angry that a male obstetrician tended to his wife, according to a report in the London-based Al-Araby newspaper.

Dr. Mohannad al-Zubn helped a woman give birth in the King Fahd Medical City in the Saudi capital of Riyadh last month.

According to Al-Araby, the father went to the hospital in order to “thank” the doctor, only to pull out a gun and shoot him at close range.

    Yes,yes,yes and all that, but, what is with the pictures of the immense hooters down the right hand side?

    Shooting western style muslim doctors and health workers seems to be a common part of “real” muslim culture worldwide. It does have some validity in rare cases going by my own experiences but this incident is a bit much.

    This is on par with the Palestinian woman who in her attempt to show gratitude for the Israeli hospital staff in Beresheva came back to the hospital wearing a suicide vest and to blowi herself up.

    Good. Great news. We need more of this among them. Step up, Muslims.
