Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Two Brits dead in Saudi explosion | The Sun |News

    This has been on the sun's website most of the afternoon, but is still not on BBC, Al Jazerra, France24, etc.

    Anyone else heard about it?
  2. According to Yahoo News, it was an accident.
  3. The BBC website mentioned this some time ago - it looks like the standard-issue Hajj cull of pilgrims which occurs every time, with a spectacular (stampede, fire, terrorist attack, security forces over-reacting to percieved terrorist attack, or combination thereof) every five years or so...

  4. Cheers - i'd been looking in the middle east section.

    Sad news if it was a fire, but still better than implications of a bomb attack on Haj pilgrims.

    p.s. And if the saudi authorities say it was a fire, then a fire it was <extreme sarcasm>
  5. Ah well...
