An international manhunt is still continuing for four suspects who allegedly murdered an entire Omani family then fled the country.
A father, mother and their three sons, aged 12, 9 and 6, were found dead in the family home in Wilayat Bidiyah last month.
They had been murdered with knives and hammers.
It took two days for relatives to discover what had happened and raise the alarm but by then the suspects had already fled Oman.
“Searches for the suspects are ongoing, in cooperation with international police, to capture those who were involved in the crime.” - Royal Oman Police
