The 10 sus­pects, who had been ac­tive in sev­eral dif­fer­ent cities, had been in di­rect con­tact with IS op­er­a­tives in Syria and Iraq to plot at­tacks in the king­dom. Most of them were rel­a­tives of male IS fight­ers in Syria and Iraq. Po­lice also seized chem­i­cals, which they sus­pected were in­tended for use in bombs, the min­istry said. – dpa
