Nine Bangladesh nationals were among the passengers in the bus that collided with a heavy vehicle near Madina recently but their fate is not yet confirmed, said the Bangladesh envoy on Saturday.

Bangladesh Ambassador to Saudi Arabia Golam Moshi told UNB that nine Bangladesh nationals boarded the bus as per its record. “But it only could be confirmed through DNA test.”

Thirty-five foreigners were killed and four others injured as the bus collided with the heavy vehicle on Thursday, according to international media.
