Genie blamed for fall of 3 girls at wedding
Three girls fell down from a wedding platform in a packed hall in Saudi Arabia, scaring off guests and prompting relatives to replace
songs with verses of the Holy Quran to expel what they believe were jinn (genies).
The bridegroom instantly shouted for the band to stop the music and turned on Quran verses when his sister who was sat near him fell off the platform.
A few minutes later, his sister-in-law fell off and was later followed with his cousin, to the shock of the guests who fled the wedding.
“Songs were replaced with Quran verses and all guests left the wedding immediately as it was believed that the girls’ fall was caused by jinn,” 'Kabar' newspaper said in a report from the western Red Sea port of Jeddah.
