The explosion occurred two days before the start of the 2022 Dakar Rally in Saudi Arabia

The Saudi Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced on Friday that preliminary investigations into the Dakar Rally accident did not show a “criminal suspicion”.

This comes after the French Foreign Minister announced that his government is studying the possibility of canceling the Dakar Rally, after what he said may have been a terrorist attack in Saudi Arabia.

Jean-Yves Le Drian said his priority was to protect the lives of French citizens, who make up the majority of competitors in the annual event.

A French driver was seriously injured when his car exploded near Jeddah last week before the start of the rally.
