Saudi Arabia arrests 46 militant suspects involved in Medina attack

Saudi Arabia said on Sunday it had arrested 46 members of a militant cell responsible for a deadly suicide bombing attack on the Prophet’s Mosque in the holy city of Medina last summer widely blamed on Daesh.

The suspects, which included foreign and Saudi citizens, were detained in the Western port city of Jeddah, state news agency SPA quoted the interior ministry as saying.

In July 2016, three suicide bombers targeted the US consulate in Jeddah, the Mosque of the Prophet in the western city of Medina; and a Shia mosque in the eastern Qatif region. The Medina attack killed four security guards near the Prophet’s Mosque, which is the burial place of the Prophet Muhammad.
