Gunmen kill two Saudi policemen
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.
