Two dead in attack in Saudi’s eastern province

The four men – including three “wanted terrorists” were reportedly attempting to flee the kingdom

Two people have been killed and two others in an operation carried out by Saudi security forces in the kingdom’s eastern province on Sunday, local station Al Arabiya reported.

The four men – including three who were on Saudi Arabia’s wanted list of terrorists – were reportedly attempting to evade a security checkpoint near Abu Hadriyah in al-Qatif.

They were seeking to escape outside the country, the report stated.

The Shi’ite region has witnessed unrest in the past.

In January, a security operation also saw two people killed and others arrested in Al-Qatif region.

The two people killed were wanted for their involvement in disruptions to security and development projects in the area, the report said at the time.
