12 Pakistanis arrested over Saudi Arabia suicide attacks

Nineteen people, including 12 Pakistani nationals, have been arrested in Saudi Arabia following suicide attacks on Monday, including one near Islam’s second-holiest site in the city of Madina, the kingdom’s Interior Ministry said on Thursday.

Seven people are believed to have been killed and two wounded in three separate attacks — in Madina, at a Shia mosque in Qatif, and in western Jeddah, the economic capital, not far from the US consulate.
A 26-year-old Saudi man, Naer Moslem Hammad al-Balawi, who had a “history of drug use” had been identified as the perpetrator of the Madina attack, the ministry said in a statement published by the official SPA news agency.

The Qatif attack, it added, was carried out by three “terrorists,” including one man named as Abderrahman Saleh Mohammed al-Amr, 23, who it said was known to the security services for taking part in protests.
