Via sabq.org., a strange report: "bat" attack "Khalidiya," a boy in a scene looks like a horror movie. Excerpt from a Google translation:
attacked flocks bat Khalidiya neighborhood province of a boy in a scene looks like a horror movie, where sparked panic and panic of the population after the growing spread, and attack them while they came out of the houses, demanding the Ministry of Agriculture to intervene splashed and destruction, especially with the increasing exit and spread in Remarkable and frightening.
And fretted and complained, saying we were surprised by large groups of swarms of bats gripping and attacking the neighborhood, where produce sounds disturbing, frightening as it looks terrifying the neighborhood kids.

Evidently being swarmed by bats is rare enough to be newsworthy in Saudi Arabia, and it's because the humans are standing amid lots of tasty bugs. But if these are a species carrying MERS, such swarming might be a means of spreading it to humans or other animals, like camels.
Postscript: No sooner had I posted this than I got a tweet from Dr. Ian Mackay about an infographic he's created showing possible animal-human infection routes...including bats, of course.
