Saudi Police Kill 7 Bombing Suspects

Police in Saudi Arabia have killed seven people they believe were responsible for setting off two car bombs in the capital city of Riyadh on Wednesday night.

One person died in the first explosion, set off near the interior ministry, and four were injured in the second, detonated during an attempt to ram the vehicle into a special forces center.

Each car bomb was part of a larger attempt to enter a government building.

After the attacks, Saudi police raided a house in Riyadh, killing all seven suspects.

The Saudis have been experiencing a wave terror attacks for about a year and a half. Two weeks ago a tape said to contain the voice of Al-Qa’ida leader Osama Bin Laden urged an uprising against Saudi leaders.
