A guest invited to a wedding in Muscat, Oman was killed when a traditional gun he was using to let off celebratory shots exploded and injured him fatally

The gun became overheated when the guest was firing the shots into the air, resulting in it exploding and metal fragments becoming lodged in the guest’s neck.

Suffering from massive bleeding, the guest was rushed to Rustaq Hospital, where he died of his injuries.

The incident comes following repeated warnings issued by the Royal Oman Police (ROP) to refrain from using celebratory gunfire at weddings and functions.
