The plots were foiled. Investigations showed that a number of people stole cars, especially taxis, at gunpoint for the purpose of using them in the attacks. However, the taxis malfunctioned and the terrorists were not able to carry out their plans.
Terrorists also tried to blow up Saudi banks using two cars that were loaded with explosives. The special criminal court has issued prison sentences against a number of people who are accused of participating in terrorist activities and has banned them from leaving the country.
