Teenager Drowns Himself in Nile after Girlfriend Refuses to Kiss Him
A 16-year-old was so heartbroken when his girlfriend refused to kiss him that he jumped into the Nile and drowned, police said Wednesday, quoted by News-Journal wire services.
Saber Ahmed Darwish was on a date with his girlfriend at a riverside club in the Nile Delta town of Benha on Tuesday when he asked her for a kiss, the officers said.
