Dubai: The body of a missing Saudi woman was found buried in a desert area in Al Kharj Governorate, southeast of the capital Riyadh, local media reported.

The family reported the disappearance of their 26-year-old daughter a week before police found her body buried in the desert, in a move that aims to cover up the crime.

Police launched an investigation into the incident and found the involvement of the victim’s two brother, who are in their 20s, in her murder.

The perpetrators were referred to public prosecution for legal action. They were remanded in police custody pending further investigation and trial.
