The images, which appeared to be still grabs from a video, show the faces of some militants and the launching of a Grad missile toward a border crossing between Saudi Arabia and Yemen.

In one of the pictures, the militants appeared being trained by a Yemeni militant leader in a desert area.

One of two militants who blew themselves up on Saturday at a Saudi security building appears in another picture, smiling and carrying a Kalashnikov. He is known as Ayoub al-Sueid, 22 years old, and has been on an interior ministry's wanted list for the past two years.
