Celebratory gunfire is an issue across the Arab world
While it's a widely popular tradition at weddings in Saudi Arabia, celebratory gunfire is also common in countries across the Arab world, including Egypt.
Earlier this year, an Egyptian groom was left in a serious medical condition after he was shot in his "private parts" at a party held a night before his wedding.
In October, an Egyptian wedding guest required surgery and hospital treatment after he was shot at a wedding.
According to Al Masry Al Youm, the 30-year-old man was attending a wedding in Egypt's Bani Swef when a stray bullet hit one of his thighs.
