Saudi police, civilians wounded in shootings
A policeman and two civilians have been wounded in shootings in a Shiite-majority province in Saudi Arabia, police said yesterday. Qatif, an eastern province in Saudi Arabia, has been hit by a string of attacks over the past week, some of them deadly. Police said an off-duty officer was wounded late Sunday when gunmen opened fire on his car as he was driving by private farmland. And two civilians were admitted with gunshot wounds early yesterday to a hospital in Qatif’s town of Awamiya, police added. All three are in stable condition.
