Tuesday, 5 July 2016
Saudi Arabia on Tuesday said that a Pakistani man who came to the kingdom 12 years ago to work as a driver carried out the suicide bombing in Jeddah.
An Interior Ministry statement issued on Tuesday identified the man as 34-year-old Abdullah Qalzar Khan. It said he lived in the Red Sea port city of Jeddah with "his wife and her parents." The statement didn't elaborate.
On Monday, another suicide bombing killed four Saudi security troops and wounded five others in a parking lot outside the sprawling mosque grounds where the Prophet Mohammad is buried in Medina.
