Al Qaeda claims credit for human bomb attack on Saudi official

BBC:

Al-Qaeda has claimed responsibility for a suicide bombing by a militant who wanted to give himself up to Saudi Arabia's security chief.

An online statement by the al-Qaeda Organisation in the Arabian Peninsula said Abdullah al-Asiri had flown on the prince's plane from Yemen.

The prince was slightly injured in the assassination attempt.

...

The man had said he wanted to personally tell the prince in his Jeddah interior ministry office that he would give himself up.

This story suggest the Saudis need to beef up their security for boarding planes that will carry admitted terrorist. They also need to build up their security for screening those who will meet with anti terrorism officials.

The Saudis have been pretty effective at dealing with internal security issues caused by al Qaeda. They need to be less trusting of the intentions of terrorist.
