The Saudi Interior Ministry announced Sunday that it has captured two of its wanted citizens from Pakistan.

The arrest came amid efforts from the kingdom to pursue citizens abroad believed to be participating in ‘terroristic’ activities.

A ministry statement said the wanted were Adel Felieh al-Anzi, and Bassem Mohammad Hamed al-Jehni.

Ministry spokesman Major General Mansour al-Turki said the detainees underwent a medical checkup upon their arrival on Saturday.

The fugitives will get the opportunity to meet their families, Mansour added.

The detainees will be treated as per the kingdom’s policy, he said.

In February, Saudi King Abdullah issued a decree stipulating up to 20 years in jail for Saudis who are members of "terrorist groups" and join fighting abroad.
