An un­em­ployed man has been jailed for life for hack­ing his friend to death with a sword.

Last Jan­uary, the Emi­rati, 23, called his coun­try­man friend and asked to meet him in Oud Al Mu­teena. At the agreed spot the ac­cused took out a 50cm sword and stabbed him re­peat­edly.

An off-duty po­lice­man wit­nessed the mur­der.

Yes­ter­day, the Dubai Court of First In­stance con­victed the ac­cused of pre­med­i­tated mur­der, although he had pleaded not guilty. The rul­ing re­mains sub­ject to ap­peal within 15 days. (Staff Re­port)
