Suicide blasts hit areas near mosques in Saudi city of Medina

Riyadh, July 5 (IANS) A suicide bomber blew himself up beside security headquarters in Prophet Mohammed’s mosque in the Saudi city of Medina on Monday, local media reported.

A second blast ensued on Monday near a mosque in the Shia city of Qatif in the Eastern side of the country, Xinhua cited Al Arabiya local news as saying.

No further details were officially reported regarding the blast that occurred shortly after a twin blast near a mosque in Qatif.

The two incidents occurred hours after a suicide bomber blew himself up in a hospital’s parking lot in Jeddah to avoid being arrested by police.

The blast struck at sunset while residents of the area broke their fast the day before the final day of the holy month of Ramadan.

Al Arabiya highlighted that no injuries were reported among worshipers who were praying in the mosque.

Several bombs were defused in the blast location.


  1. All non Muslims are barred from entering into the city, and these places of worship are packed with pilgrims and worshippers from all over the world.

    This mosque is considered the second most holy in Islam and there is so much security in these places, but if still people are breaching these barriers and blasting themselves then where on earth it is safe.

    “A bad news”? Couldn’t you just say – “Some bad news”.. or even keep it simple and say – “Bad news”?

    Man… where did you ‘pick’ up your English? Some Go-shaalaaaa in Gowdaland?

    Ignoring the main point and focusing on an unrelated thing has become Saudi-returned Praveena’s unique ‘style’. No wonder this genius from ‘beef club’ has failed in every test/interview!! Oooota aayotha andare, mundaaasu muvathu mola…

    Indian “MEDIA”? Weren’t YOU the Rampa who was calling Indian Media as “stenographers”? Why the volte-face now?

    And did you mean to say – ‘Anti Indian’ elements? See, this is what happens when you don’t read your Rapidex properly. Eega, EYT ella bidi. Nimma rapidex open maadi mooru aaru shabda vodi.

    And btw, being a —-eater, what exactly would you know about Biryani? I could give you a plate, you’d wolf it down, ask for more, …………. and say – chaang assa ne ve? Smiles.. 🙂

  5. “Why the volte-face now” asks Saudi-trained joker Praveena Pinto

    I fully understand your struggle and I am here to educate you. See, our Indian media has two groups – journalists (0.01%) and stenographers(99.99%). That’s why I always write ‘stenographers in Indian media’. Stenographers are the ones who are always hiding under the table but act as if they are ‘journalists’. The true journalists (you can count on the fingers of one hand once you learn how to count!!) are the ones who are not afraid to talk about truth and reality. Let me know if you need more help.

      Lol! Now that you have broken your fast after a month and are in celebratory mood, the blood level in your Alcohol stream must have dropped drastically. No wonder then you came up with hallucinations such as:

      1. I live in a distant land of Milk & Money (and in reply, I posted videos showing you how many thousands of homeless people. Figures range from 1.3 million to 3.5 million).

      2. Journos (0.01%) and Stenos (99.99%) (I’m LMAO! Who on earth are you to ‘classify’ Indian media? Which tool(s) did you use to arrive at such ridiculous figures? Jim Beam/Beefeater and some legalized weed?)

      Man.. Rampa…… I’m getting ab cramps by laughing so much! 🙂 Please, O MOST merciful one, have some mercy and pity on my poor cramped-up abs.

      Plzzzzz ya, Rapidex RampaNNA. I mean, your jokes are MOST welcome, but then you shoot them off in such rapid(ex) fashion, I LMAO and get cramps.
