Saudi: Unprecedented actions to protect mosques

Published: Updated:

The security authorities discussed with the Ministry of Islamic Affairs the possibility of providing an intensive protection for mosques and guards at their gates during the next Friday prayer, while increasing the control during the other days.

The Ministry of Islamic Affairs sent a statement to all mosques in the Kingdom about the necessity of closing mosques after prayers and providing guards and observers all week long, according to Al-Hayat newspaper today. This came on the background of the terrorist attacks on mosques last year.
