Man Commits Suicide In Masjid Al Haram

Web Desk(June 09, 2018): A man identified as a foreign national died on Friday after reportedly throwing himself to the ground from the roof of the Grand Mosque in the Holy city of Makkah, reported English al-Arabiya.

A spokesperson informed the media that the man jumped from the roof of the Grand Mosque at around 9:20 pm and died on the spot. The police also confirmed the incident.

Saudi Press Agency statement quoted the spokesperson as saying: “The body was rushed to a hospital, pending the results of the investigation into the incident, particularly his identity, and reasons behind his behavior despite the erection of a strong round fence to protect people from falling down.”

Earlier, the Foreign Office said that Pakistan has renewed its pledge to remain committed to safeguarding the holy places and the territorial integrity of Saudi Arabia.

The statement came just two days after suicide bombers struck three cities, including Masjid-e-Nabawi in Madina, in the kingdom in 2016 in an apparently coordinated campaign of attacks as Saudis prepared to break their fast on the penultimate day of the holy month of Ramazan.
