He is currently traveling to Dahgoatisbahd where he will receive his eternal reward.
In a statement read on state TV, the ministry said three cells planned the attack on worshippers and security forces at the mosque as the Ramadan Bombathon is coming to a big climax.
The holed-up Muslim suicide bomber exchanged gunfire with security forces then blew himself up when he realized he was surrounded. The house is located in the central Mecca neighborhood of Ajyad al-Masafi near the mosque that was used as the base for the attack--something that many mosques are known for.
When the suicide bomber jihadi blew himself up, the building collapsed, injuring six foreigners and five members of the security force. All searchers could find of the bomber was part of what might have been his left testicle.
I believe we need to show those horrible photos so future idiot jihadis can see how attractive they are in the aftermath of the explosion.
Earlier that same day, security forces shot dead a wanted man at another suspected orthodox Islamist hideout in al-Aseelah. A third cell was also broken up in the Red Sea city of Jeddah, but no further details were available.
Five additional suspects, including what was believed to be a woman under a burka, were arrested.
It was not immediately clear who was behind the plot to attack the mosque, but you can bet that they viewed the Grand Mosque worshippers as "infidels who aren't doing Islam right."
ISIS will probably take credit for the botched attack.
