Analysis: Jeddah blast follows mounting tensions between France and Muslim world

Several people were injured in what French officials described as a “bomb attack” in the Saudi city of Jeddah. The attack took place at a ceremony marking the end of World War I at a cemetery for non-Muslims organised by the French consulate in Jeddah. FRANCE 24’s chief foreign editor Robert Parsons says the explosion, which comes two weeks after an attack on a French security guard in the country, points to growing tensions between France and the Muslim world.
