An electric shock killed 24 people, and wounded 30 others, mostly
women, celebrating a wedding in the eastern region of Saudi Arabia
early on Wednesday, Al Arabiya correspondent reported.

The wedding was held in "Ain Badr" village, in Abqaiq, 60 kilometeres southwest of the Dhahran-Dammam-Khobar metropolitan area.

The disaster occurred when a high voltage power line fell down and
touched the metal door of the house where the wedding was being held,
according to sources from the Saudi Civil Defense.
