A man holding a knife in his hand was seen chanting slogans of a terrorist organization on the first floor of Grand Mosque of Makkah.
Saudi Press Agency reported that the man was immediately arrested on Mar 30 by the security forces personnel, after Asr prayers. A Makkah police spokesperson said that legal action was started against the suspect.
Meanwhile, Sheikh Abdul Rahman Al Sudais told The National that the man did not respect the sanctity of the place. “God has made the Grand Mosque a place of worship, including prayer, tawaf and Hajj,” he was quoted by The National as saying.
