ON KILLING OF 5 BANGLADESHI WORKERS IN SAUDI ARABIA

I picked this up from a Malaysian blog "Eric Mudasi's World View". Daily Times of Pakistan claims that:

reportedly an angry member of the Saudi royal family sprayed bullets on a number of foreign workers at a place 300 kilometres from Riyadh on February 4 when they were resting at a combination of picnic spots and agricultural farms. The firing left six people, five Bangladeshis and a Sudanese, dead. Later the killer burnt their bodies. The Saudi police rushed to the spot and arrested a man identified as a son of Abdullah bin Fahd, a member of the royal family.

Earlier I heard from local news that five Bangladeshi workers are missing in Saudi Arabia and presumed dead. But no such news has surfaced in the media till today.

Now the problem is that I could not find more about this news from any other source. If it is true then Bangladesh should take this up seriously to bring the guilty persons to justice and ensure fair trial to punish them.
