April 10, 2007: a Yemeni court sentenced two Palestinian brothers to death and a third to prison for committing a grisly triple murder, the state news agency Saba said. Mohammed and Bilal al-Bahisi were convicted of killing Jordanian Mohammed al-Malkawi, his Yemeni wife Amna al-Rimi and her friend Warda al-Matri.
The brothers were accused of "removing their heads from their bodies and throwing them in a barrel" before burying the bodies and stealing with 518,000 riyals from Malkawi's home. (Sources: Agence France Presse, 10/04/2007)
