MADINAH: The death toll in Madinah blast has risen to five as suicide bomber blew himself while trying to enter Masjid – Nabvi.
Al Arabiya news channel showed images of fire raging in a parking lot with at least one body nearby.
State-linked Saudi news websites earlier said an explosion has gone off outside one of Islam’s holiest sites in the city of Madinah, the same day that two suicide bombers struck different cities in Saudi Arabia.
However, the natives have other stories to tell, as many natives have taken social media to report that it was not a suicide blast outside Prophet’s mosque, but a gas cylinder blast.
