Arabia arrests 88 over “terror” suspicions


SHAFAQNA (International Shia News Association)-Saudi Arabia has detained 88 people, more than half of them Saudis, on suspicion of plotting “terrorist” attacks at home and abroad, the interior ministry said on Tuesday.

Ministry spokesman Major General Mansour Turki told a news conference that 48 of those arrested were Saudis, and that many had been planning assassinations.

A ministry statement carried by the official Saudi Press Agency said the ministry had been following a number of suspects in view of what it called the spread of “strife and sick ideas” that lured members of the community “to places of strife.”
