Man tries to set himself alight at Mecca Grand Mosque
A video clip circulating on social media showed a man being hustled away from the Kaaba by pilgrims and security guards.
“His actions suggest that he is mentally ill,” the mosque’s police service said in a statement, adding without elaborating that police would take measures to address the incident.
Police said the man was in his 40s.
Reuters was not able to verify the footage.
