Gunmen kill 2 Saudi Arabia policemen
Unknown gunmen killed two security officers in the eastern city of Dammam, an area heavily populated by Shiites in Saudi Arabia.
Spokesman of country’s interior ministry Maj. Gen. Mansour al-Turki said in a statement on Sunday that a patrol in Dammam's al-Khudariya district came under fire late Saturday night.
Last month, Dammam police arrested two men, one Saudi and the other Syrian, in possession of a firearm and an explosive vest who were allegedly recruited by the Islamic State group to carry out a suicide attack. Two other Syrians were also arrested. –RH
