Foreign Ministry spokesperson Amr Roshdy said Sunday that two Saudis have been arrested for allegedly shooting an Egyptian citizen in Saudi Arabia following an argument.
He said the Egyptian Consulate in Jeddah is following up on the case.
Doctors at Medina al-Monawarah hospital in Saudi Arabia removed a bullet from the Egyptian man's leg.
Adel al-Alfy, the Egyptian general consul in Jeddah, received a report on the incident, Roshy told reporters. The two suspects who were arrested live in the same building as the man who was shot. Police are still searching for others who were allegedly involved.
Alfy contacted the citizen to ensure that he was in a good health and inform him that the consulate is following his case. He delegated Yasser Elwany, the consulate’s legal adviser, to offer support and follow up on police efforts.
