Suicide bomber hit Saudi Arabia as Ramadan fast draws to close

Three separate explosions by suspected suicide bombers have occurred in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia as the annual Ramadan fast draws to a close. The first suicide blast, which was foiled by security operatives, took place near a U.S. consulate in the coastal city of Jeddah.

A spokesperson of the Saudi government said the attack was carried out by an “expatriate in his 30s”.

Hours later, Al-Arabiya network reported another suicide blast near a mosque in the city of Qatif, in the Kingdom’s Eastern Province, AP reports.

Some few minutes ago, Al Arabiya again reported that another suicide bomber “blew himself up near a police post at the Prophet’s Mosque in Madinah.”
