Planned U.S. Embassy attack

28 Apr, 2015

Saudi Arabia says it has arrested a total of 93 people with ties to the ISIS in recent months, foiling their plans to carry out multiple terrorist attacks which included a strike on the U.S. embassy. An Interior Ministry spokesman says the arrests include a cell of 65 people arrested in March who were involved in a plan that included targeting residential compounds, prisons and security forces. He says authorities also disrupted a plot for a suicide car bomber to attack the U.S. Embassy in Riyadh after receiving information about the plan in mid-March. The U.S. Embassy in Riyadh has no immediate comment on the disclosure.
