pakiA Pakistani national involved in a car accident that resulted in the death of a Saudi man in the Ha’il province has been freed after a Saudi citizen paid SR 225,000 as blood money to the members of the man’s family to secure his release.

The man said that this was a thankful gesture for Pakistan’s support in the Saudi-led military coalition conducting airstrikes against Yemeni Houthi rebels, local media reported.

Pakistan has announced that it will send troops to Saudi Arabia to give military support to a coalition of mainly Gulf states fighting Houthi rebels in Yemen.
