Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Interior on Monday announced that a man had been executed in Riyadh for planning to target public civilian gatherings through a suicide mission under the direction of ISIS.
The ministry said the man had an explosive belt and photographs of the target with him.
The man had also sworn allegiance to ISIS and adopted their ideas, the Kingdom’s interior ministry added.
In October, Saudi Arabia executed a citizen in the Eastern Province with links to a terrorist cell. He had killed security men and a citizen, and was in possession of materials for making a Molotov cocktail bomb, the official Saudi Press Agency (SPA) reported.
The terrorist cell aimed to destabilize the country’s internal security, according to SPA.
