Last month, Lebanese police arrested two Saudi citizens in al-Sfeir, south of the capital Beirut, for stabbing their brother to death.

According to a statement issued by Lebanon’s Internal Security Forces, the victim, born in 1980, was killed by his two brothers over family disputes.

Police detained the two after investigations revealed that they were hiding in an apartment in al-Sfeir.
