Al Badr is a village in Makkah Province, in western Saudi Arabia.[1] An electrical fire at a wedding in the village killed 25 people in the courtyard of a home on October 31, 2012. 30 were injured in the blaze, which was believed to have been started by a high-voltage power line which fell, sparking, after being hit by celebratory gunfire.[2]
