Saudi interior ministry spokesman Maj. Gen. Mansour Al-Turki said terror suspects on the list of 16 wanted men announced by the ministry on Wednesday and several others arrested over the past few weeks were believed to have been involved in terrorist plots including suicide attacks, in addition to links to Al-Qudaih and Al-Anoud mosque blasts and the attack on a security vehicle.

In a statement to Al-Watan daily, Al-Turki said the majority of the suspects on the new list have gone into hiding.

As for their whereabouts, Al-Turki said intelligence indicates that three of them left the Kingdom through legal channels and have not yet returned.

He said the ministry has not ruled out the possibility of them sneaking back into the Kingdom across the border
