TABUK -- Tabuk police denied recent rumors of a young woman who has been spreading the AIDS virus by seducing men. The woman, said to be a Syrian national who entered the Kingdom illegally, was alleged to have lured men and teenagers into hotels and furnished apartments with the aim of transmitting the virus to them.
According to police, the rumor spread via social networking sites. The official spokesman for Tabuk Police, Maj. Khaid Ghabban, said police investigated the rumors and were led to a dead end.
“This is purely fictional and not reality,” said Ghabban while urging people to verify stories before passing them on as fact and contact authorities for accurate information if they were in doubt. -- SG
