The 10 Bangladeshi expatriate workers killed in a road accident in Saudi Arabia have been identified.

The deceased Bangladeshis are: Jamaluddin Majhi, Md Al Amin, Emdadul from Norsingdi; Giasuddin Mridha, Md Manik, from Naogon; Bahadur, Md Monir Hossain from Tangail; Md Jewel, from Kishoreganj; Rafiqul Islam, from Kushtia; and Yunus Ali, from Mymensingh.

The accident occurred as the minivan carrying the workers—who were going from Dammam to Madina, to offer ziarat at the Rawza Mubarak of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)—crashed into a covered van in Shagra, some 200km from Riyadh, after one of its tyres deflated around 6:30am on Thursday.
