Saudi authorities have arrested the suspect involved in the shooting of two German diplomats earlier this year, the Saudi Press Agency reported.

In January, two German diplomats survived a shooting attack on their car while on a visit to eastern Saudi Arabia, the state news agency SPA reported at the time.

An Interior Ministry spokesman said on Friday that security forces were able to track the suspect, who is one of several suspects involved in a number of shootings and armed robberies in Awamiya, “including an attack on a German diplomatic car,” the SPA reported.

The suspect is accused of committing acts of terrorism in Awamiya, in Qatif province.
