JEDDAH: An Iraqi national committed suicide by jumping off the roof of the Al-Haram Grand Mosque in Makkah on Friday morning, the Saudi Press Agency (SPA) stated.
“Two extra pilgrims who were injured in the event are in a steady situation in the hospital,” said Ahmad bin Muhammad Al-Mansouri, orator for the Presidency of the Holy Mosques. Security establishments are examining the event, Ahmad bin Muhammad Al-Mansouri added.
It is not the initial such case. In June, a French national committed suicide at the Masjid Al Haram. And last year, a Saudi tried to set burn himself in front of the Holy Kaaba — the square stone structure at the center of the Masjid al-haram complex — but was stopped by security services. Islam, like other monotheistic religions, forbidden suicide.
