9 Americans among 33 terror suspects arrested in Saudi Arabia
Saudi authorities have arrested nine American citizens among 33 "terror" suspects rounded up over the past days, the Saudi Gazette newspaper reported on Sunday.These are apparently in addition to 532 ISIL suspects who are being interrogated. Saudi intelligence is usually pretty good and it is living in a target rich environment.
The arrests also included 14 Saudis, three Yemenis, two Syrians, an Indonesian, a Filipino, an Emirati, a Kazakhstan national and a Palestinian, the paper said.Four Americans were arrested on Monday and five others over the past four days, the paper reported citing an unidentified source.
It did not say if any of the "terror suspects" was linked to the Islamic State group, which has claimed several deadly attacks against security forces and Shiites in the kingdom in recent months.
On Friday, a suicide bomber attacked a Shiite mosque in Eastern Province killing four people before worshippers disarmed and tied up his accomplice who had fired on them.
