University student kills brother in Bahrain

Stabbed him during a fight

A Bahraini university student killed his younger brother during a fight at their home in the Gulf kingdom, a Bahrain newspaper reported on Tuesday.

The 21-year-old victim was rushed to hospital suffering from serious stab wounds but he died on the way, the Arabic language daily Al Wasat said.

It quoted a police source as saying the elder brother confessed to the crime but denied killing his brother deliberately.

“He said that he stabbed his brother by accident during a scuffle at their home,” the paper said.
