Judicial sources confirmed to AlArabiya.net that five suspects in the murder case of Saudi teacher Khalil Al-Omayrini have confessed to their crimes.

Egyptian prosecutors decided on Tuesday to jail the five suspects – aged between 19 and 32 – pending formal charges for the murder Omayrini in Giza.

Among the suspects was a mechanic of a car garage found at the bottom of the building where Omrayrini lived in Cairo. Hamada Mohammed Taha – the garage owner – was the mastermind behind the murder who, along with his friends, decided to rob the Saudi citizen on the day of the murder.

The 47-year-old victim, who was found dead on Tuesday in his apartment in Cairo, was seen in a video taken during his farewell party at his school shortly before his killing.
