In a shocking rage, a woman is alleged to have butchered her lover, cooked his remains and served them to workers with rice.
The woman, a Moroccan, is said to have carried out the act in the United Arab Emirates.
The Daily Mail which reported the story said the unnamed woman carried out the killing at her home in Al Ain after her boyfriend of seven years said he was planning to marry someone else in Morocco, prosecutors say.
Officers said she cut up his body and used a blender to mince her former partner’s remains before cooking and serving them to Pakistani workers near her home as machboos – a traditional Gulf dish of rice and meat similar to biryani.
Police were called after the man was reported missing by his brother.
He went to the couple’s home in the hope of finding him, but she claimed to have kicked the victim out and said she did not know where he was.
Reports in Morocco then quoted the brother as saying that police found a human tooth inside the woman’s blender.
According to The National, DNA tests confirmed the tooth belonged to the man and his girlfriend was arrested.
