The boy’s mother is also said to have been seriously injured in the incident but her health condition is said to be stable.
“Two girls were stabbed [to death] by their 15-year-old brother and their mother was seriously injured. Her health is stable,” the Royal Oman Police said in statement on Twitter. ROP has launched an investigation into the crime.
