Saudi authorities announced on Sunday they had foiled a “terror” plot by elements suspected of links to Al-Qaeda, mostly Yemeni nationals. They said they had also busted two extremist cells in Riyadh and Jeddah.
The interior ministry said in a statement the suspects were “in contact with the deviant organization abroad,” a term usually used to refer to Al Qaeda jihadist network.
The suspects were working on “recruiting elements to execute criminal attacks targeting security forces, citizens and foreign residents, as well as public installations,” it said in a statement carried by the official SPA news agency.
