Two Saudi policemen were fatally shot in Saudi Arabia’s Dammam by unknown assailants, Al Arabiya television reported early Sunday morning.

The policemen were on patrol in the country’s Eastern Province, known to be the oil-producing area, as well as home to the Shi’ite population of the kingdom – a minority in the mostly conservative Sunni country.

The shootings have been occurring as of late as Shi’ite militants have begun voicing their concern with what they say is repression within the country.
