October 18 1999

Sheikh Ali Kalkal from Al-Safra’a in Sadah met his death after trying to use a mobile he received as a gift from a mysterious person through a mediator who said that it was a gift from another shiekh. It is said that he was asked to open it the gift when being alone. Although the victim’s family asked him to open the present while they were riding a car together, he refused. He opened it when he became alone in one of the houses. No sooner he opened it, than a huge explosion was heard. The whole body of the victim has shattered to pieces due to the explosion. This case is the first of its kind and so far mystery is covering the whole case.
