A heartless man has killed himself after he tried to burn his wife alive.
According to AFP, the man identified as a refugee in a German shelter died Thursday leaving the woman seriously injured and part of the building ablaze, police said.
The 45-year-old man’s nationality is yet unknown. The woman, who had previously separated from her husband, was taken to hospital by helicopter, police said.
Police said the incident which took place near Ruedesheim on the Rhine river in the central state of Hesse also left two other people injured.
It would be recalled that about one million asylum seekers last year were taken in by Germany. This has caused an increased crime rate and violent clashes.
