*As Fear of Terror Attack Mounts
There are fears that Saudi Arabia may have become the target of terror attack following reports of massive explosions near the Jeddah Corniche Circuit in Saudi Arabia.
Reports by Daily Star have it that the incident, which is generating real doubts over the upcoming Saudi Grand Prix, has plunged the event into chaos as what it described as ‘massive explosion’ took place near the track in the city of Jeddah.
The reports added that Grand Prix drivers were finishing their practice drills when a loud boom rang out, followed by an equally massive inferno broke out at the nearby state run Aramco petroleum facility, sparking fears of a terrorist attack.
The medium notes that the cause of the blaze is yet to be established but adds that Houthi rebels, a Yemeni Islamist group, have already laid claims to the explosion as it did a number of similar attacks across the kingdom in recent weeks.
