Authorities managed to track down Ali Mahmoud Ali Abdullah, who was wanted by security agencies, at 4 p.m. in the afternoon, the interior ministry said, according to SPA.

Evidence showed Abdullah’s involvement in a number of “terrorist crimes” that threatened public security in Qatif.

Abdullah shot at security forces when they found him in a farm in the town of Awwamiya. He was killed in the ensuring gunfight.

A machine gun and a pistol were reportedly found near his body.
