DNA test links suspect to rapes

JEDDAH: A DNA test has proved beyond doubt that a 42-year-old Saudi elementary schoolteacher detained at Jeddah police station raped 13 young girls aged between 6-10.

The police also said seven of the victims recognized him, while five of them recognized his home furniture that included shisha pipes, two plasma TVs, an office computer and a rug.
