The mother was asked if she was Shia moments before attack
The first pictures have emerged of a six-year-old boy who was beheaded with a shard of glass in front of his screaming mother in Saudi Arabia.
Zakaria Al-Jaber was in a taxi with his mother, on their way to the shrine of the Prophet Muhammad in Medina, when a car drove up and the boy was dragged out.
The taxi driver reportedly dragged the boy towards a coffee shop in the Al-Tilal area before smashing a glass bottle and slitting his throat.
The attacker slit the six-year-old’s throat with a shard of glass before stabbing him repeatedly as both his mother and a nearby police officer attempted to stop the brutal attack, TMV reported.
Sajid Hussain shared pictures of the boy on Twitter, calling for ‘justice’ and saying: ‘Smallest coffins are the heaviest’.
He said: That’s barbaric how that Saudi driver beheaded 6years old Zakariya.
‘You don’t need to be a Shia or Sunni. Try to be a Human first. Justice Delayed means Justice Denied.’
