At least 10 Bangladeshi expatriate workers have been killed and several others injured in a road accident in Saudi Arabia.

The identities of the deceased could not be known immediately.

Nazrul Islam, deputy chief of mission at the Bangladesh Embassy in Riyadh, told Dhaka Tribune the Bangladeshis were going to Madina from Dammam in a minivan to offer ziarat at the Rawza Mubarak of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

The vehicle crashed into a covered van at Shagra, some 200km off Riyadh, after one of its tyres deflated around 6:30am, he said.

The accident left 10 Bangladeshis dead on the spot and five others injured, Nazrul said, adding that all the victims had been working at Al Habib Catering Service in Dammam.

Among the five injured, two are in critical condition and being treated at a local hospital, while two others were released after first aid, Nazrul added.

He further said officials from the Bangladesh Embassy have been dispatched to the accident spot to ascertain details of what had happened.

When contacted, Bangladesh Ambassador to Saudi Arabia Golam Moshi confirmed news of the incident and said further details of the accident would be revealed on Friday.
