A SIX-year-old boy was beheaded with a piece of broken glass in front of his screaming mum, a campaign group has claimed.
Shia Rights Watch says that “in an unprecedented incident” the child was brutally killed in Saudi Arabia after he was confirmed to be a Shia Muslim.
TMV, which has posted footage of the murdered boy’s funeral on its website, says he was killed in broad daylight in the city of Medina last Thursday.
Sources close to the family said that Zakaria Al-Jaber was in a taxi to visit the shrine of Prophet Muhammad in Medina.
However, the taxi driver stopped the car and “forced the boy out near a coffee shop in the Al-Tilal neighbourhood”, TMV says.
