Man claims to be world's savior
Muslim worshippers abruptly ended their prayers at a mosque in Saudi Arabia and joined hands to overpower a man screaming and claiming to be the world's savior.
A YouTube film published in Ajel Arabic language daily showed several men at the mosque in the capital Riyadh assaulted the man after he tried to disrupt the evening prayers by screaming and claiming to be Al-Medhi Al-Montathar (the Chosen Imam Al-Mehdi).
The film showed the man trying to hit back before he was overpowered.
Ajel said the man was arrested after assaulting the mosque's Imam (preacher) and trying to enter the women's section at the mosque.
Muslims believe Imam Al-Mehdi, dubbed 'the ultimate savior of mankind' will eventually reappear as a great reformer who will destroy the beliefs of injustice and ignorance and fill this earth with fairness after it has been filled with injustice and oppression.
