A Syrian man in Germany put out a video on Facebook Live of himself stabbing his wife to death and fleeing with their children.
The man, who calls himself Abu Marwan in the video, can be seen with blood on his face as he speaks into the camera.
A boy believed to be the couple’s son is seen standing int he background.
Why’d he do it?
He said in the video he wanted to send a message to women who irritate their husbands.
Welcome to feminism, women’s rights and the legal system, Islam style.
The Daily Mail has more:
The man was arrested by police shortly after fleeing the scene in Mühlacker on Friday, the chief prosecutor in the case said.
In the video, he attempts to justify the murder by saying he did it to send a message to women who irritate their husbands, Al Arabiya reports.
He warns: ‘This is how you’ll end’.
He and the boy believed to be his son also urge viewers to share the video.
At one point in the video, after he has stepped outside of the home and is walking in a street, a man appears to shout at him in German to ask what is happening.
He responds by shouting ‘Sorry!’ and continues walking with the boy.
The man had reportedly been kicked out of the home when he tried to visit his wife, from whom he was reportedly separated.
He had wanted to resolve matters but the woman – who had custody of their three children – was not interested.
According to the German press, the man had often called the woman requesting money.
They also said the couple’s young daughter was in the home during the shocking killing and called police.
Dr Bernhard Ebinger, the senior prosecutor in the case, said: ‘[On] Friday afternoon, a 41-year-old Syrian in an apartment in Mühlacker killed his 37-year-old wife and first fled with one of their sons on foot.
‘The minor in the apartment, the remaining daughter, communicated to police at 4.30pm what had occurred.
‘A large contingent of police went after after the fugitive offender and was able to catch him in Mühlacker a short time later.
‘He remains under arrest.’
The Badische Neueste Nachrichten reported that the couple’s children – two sons and one daughter – had been handed over to youth services.
The Mühlacker Tagblatt newspaper, meanwhile, quoted the landlady of the home.
She said they were a ‘very nice family’ with ‘very dear children’.
The paper also reported that the family had come from Syria as refugees, but that the father no longer lived with them.
