'Human remains' fall from sky over Saudi Arabia

HUMAN remains have reportedly fallen from the sky in the Saudi city of Jeddah, landing on the tarmac of a normally busy intersection at around 2.30am on Sunday.

Police say they received a call from someone who saw the body fall, spokesman Nawaf bin Naser Al-Bouq told the AFP news agency.

While investigations are ongoing, Mr Bouq said initial indications suggested the remains "fell from a plane's landing gear".

The incident occurred on the same morning that a Saudi Arabian Airlines flight was forced to make an emergency landing in the city of Medina after suffering a landing gear failure.

Police would not say if the body parts that were found had anything to do with that plane, AFP reported.
