In Manama, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said there were five people injured in the accident as well and that it was coordinating with the Bahraini embassy in Riyadh “in order to provide all necessary facilities and procedures.”
Bahraini families regularly use the 25-kilometre King Fahd Causeway to drive into Saudi Arabia where they visit their relatives, tour various areas of the vast kingdom or engage in shopping.
Several Bahrainis also use the terrestrial link to drive to Makkah, almost 1,200 kilometres away, to perform Umrah.
