CCTV shows Sammy Almahri arriving at Cardiff hotel

A "jealous" American has admitted murdering a woman in a Cardiff Bay hotel.

Sammy Almahri, 44, pleaded guilty to murdering Nadine Aburas, 28, at the Future Inn on New Year's Eve 2014.

He initially admitted manslaughter but denied murder on the grounds of diminished responsibility, but changed his plea at Cardiff Crown Court on Thursday.

The court heard he killed her because the "voice of God" told him to.

CCTV footage, released by police in January 2015, showed Almahri arriving at the Future Inn hotel.
