Woman attempts suicide

Police said a young Saudi woman in Tabuk was found covered in blood after she tried to commit suicide recently by cutting her wrist.
The authorities said that the woman was found alive inside the toilet of a well-known mall after the information was relayed to the Red Crescent in the region.
The woman was taken to King Khaled Hospital for immediate treatment.
“The 24-year-old woman was in a bad shape but she’s now in stable condition and recovering at the hospital,” police said.
Police said they are yet to question the woman about her reasons for trying to taking her life.
There had been unexplained incidents of suicide in Tabuk in the past. One incidence was the case of a US defense contractor whose death earlier this year was recorded as suicide by the police.
