A Saudi Arabian preacher was shot dead in Guinea’s east after organizing a prayer service that angered some villagers in the majority-Muslim West African country, local sources said Wednesday.

Sheikh Abdul Muhsin Al-Tuwaijri was a member of a mission building mosques in Upper Guinea and was killed on Tuesday night in the village of Kantebalandougou, between the towns Kankan and Kerouane.

He was “shot twice in the chest while riding a motorcycle with a villager on the way to get his car,” a security source told AFP.

“The Saudi died at the scene while his companion, who owned the motorcycle, was seriously injured and taken to a hospital in Kankan,” said a medical source.
