The Jerusalem Post reports: A Jordanian doctor who helped deliver a baby at a Saudi hospital was shot by the woman’s husband who was angry that a male obstetrician tended to his wife, according to a report in the London-based Al-Araby newspaper.

Dr. Mohannad al-Zubn helped a woman give birth in the King Fahd Medical City in the Saudi capital of Riyadh last month.

According to Al-Araby, the father went to the hospital in order to “thank” the doctor, only to pull out a gun and shoot him at close range.

“The husband came to the hospital looking for the doctor and shot him in the chest in an attempt to kill him for helping his wife deliver a baby,” said a hospital spokesperson.
