Dubai: Two Egyptian newlyweds suffocated to death on Sunday just a day after their wedding in the village of Taha Al Marj in Al Sharqiya Governorate, local media reported on Monday.

A state of grief engulfed villagers and social media platforms after the announcement of the death of two newlyweds due to a gas leak.

The Director of Al Sharqiya Security was informed by the Director of the Criminal Investigation Department, who received a report about the death of the two newlyweds inside their marital home.
