TAIZ- A man died in hospital due to serious wounds after being stabbed by a sharp dagger by two men behind the Faculty of Engineering's fence in Habeel Salman, Taiz.
Apparently the victim protested the behavior of two men and their girlfriends, who as he claims, 'were performing unsuitable acts in public'.
Rescue attempts to save the victim's life came from locals in the area as he was carried to the hospital, but was not able to survive his serious injury. Police forces traced the two men and arrested them and later arrested their respective girlfriends who were detained in the women's central prison in Taiz. The two men confessed the act and are now subjected to criminal investigation procedures.
