Saudi Arabia says it has detected six new cases of the deadly Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (Mers) in 24 hours, the biggest daily jump for months with officials blaming lax hospital procedures.

At least 22 people were killed when a fuel truck crashed into a flyover in the Saudi capital Riyadh on Thursday, triggering an explosion that caused the collapse of an industrial building.

Celebratory gunfire at a wedding party in eastern Saudi Arabia brought down an electric cable, killing 23 people, a local civil defence official said on Wednesday.
