The journalist who does not want his name in print told Muslim News on Monday, July 18 that the lost sum amounts to at least $2,700, equivalent to 1, 647, 610.

Narrating the incident, the journalist said he couldn’t exactly pinpoint how the money got lost, however, he said he suspected that it either slipped from his pocket in a public transit he boarded from Jeddah to Makkah or at Bab Makkah, where he was waiting for some colleagues who went shopping.
