Man dies after crash during car chase with Saudi religious police
RIYADH (AFP) - A Saudi man, whose brother was killed when a religious police patrol crashed into their car during a hot pursuit last week, died on Tuesday of his injuries, his family said.
Mr Saud al-Qaws died from wounds sustained in the chase, just hours after the funeral of his brother Nasser, who was killed on the spot in the Sept 24 incident, a third brother Saad told AFP.
Last week a patrol of the notorious religious police, which is charged with ensuring compliance with Islamic morality but often accused of abuses, chased the brothers before crashing into their sedan and forcing it off an overpass and onto a lower-level road.
The patrol vehicle fled the scene immediately, and the reasons behind the deadly car chase still remain unknown.
