RIYADH: Uniden­ti­fied gun­men killed two Saudi po­lice­men in the eastern city of Dam­mam early yes­ter­day, author­i­ties in the re­gion said. The officers came un­der “heavy fire from an un­known source” as they parked their ve­hi­cle in a com­mer­cial area, the of­fi­cial SPA news agency quoted a po­lice spokesman as say­ing. Mean­while, one of 85 sus­pected Is­lamist mil­i­tants on a Saudi wanted list sent to In­ter­pol in Feb 2009 handed him­self in to Saudi author­i­ties, the in­te­rior min­istry said. Osama Ali Ab­dul­lah Dam­jan had con­tacted se­cu­rity ser­vices from abroad ex­press­ing a will­ing­ness to sur­ren­der and was flown home yes­ter­day, a min­istry state­ment pub­lished by SPA said, with­out spec­i­fy­ing from which coun­try.
