The mother of a two children allegedly stabbed by an Ethiopian maid in Saudi Arabia has spoken out on the horrific crime in an interview with Al Arabiya English.

An earlier report explained how the maid is believed to have attacked the two children while their mother was at work, killing an 11-year-old girl and wounding her 14-year-old brother.


In his failed attempt to save his sister, the boy was stabbed in his chest and his stomach before he managed to escape to a nearby bathroom and phone his mother for help.

The boy was rushed to the intensive care as soon as the authorities arrived at the scene.

The mother was temporarily hiding his sister’s death from him until his health condition stabilizes.

She told Al Arabiya English that a hospital visitor who was offering her condolences inadvertently informed the boy.

She added that Ali, making a slow recovery, has been demanding strict punishment for the maid who admitted she had no motive for the murder.

The mother, who received her daughter’s body on Thursday, said in pain: “Instead of picking her up on her wedding day and dressing her in a white gown, I am going to wash her body and bury her.”
