Saudi Arabia named a street in Tarout Island after slain Shiite judge Sheikh Mohammed al-Jirani as instructed by King Salman bin Abdulaziz.

The street named after him is where Jirani lived and where he was kidnapped from over a year ago, Minister of Municipal and Rural Affairs Abdul Latif bin Abdulmalik Al-Sheikh told the Saudi Press Agency (SPA).

Jirani was kidnapped in December 2016 from in front of his house. A year later, his body was recovered in the remote area of Salehia in Awamiya in Qatif.
