RIYADH, Nov 17 : At least three people died and flights were delayed during heavy rain that fell on Saudi Arabia on Tuesday, officials said as the desert nation braced for a cool snap.
Two people in the
Red Sea city of Jeddah were electrocuted, and an
11-year-old boy drowned in Yanbu further north,
the civil defence agency said.
Jeddah's King Abdulaziz International Airport said eight domestic flights were delayed "due to the rainy weather conditions in Jeddah".
One international flight was diverted to Medina, it added in a statement, without giving more details. ?AFP
