Al Arabiya documentary: Saudi Arabia’s crackdown on al-Qaeda
Never-seen-before footage of al-Qaeda’s operations and the subsequent raids
A documentary series aired on the Al Arabiya News Channel reveals never-seen-before footage of al-Qaeda’s operations in Saudi Arabia and the subsequent raids and crackdowns on the group by authorities.
In 2003 the then security chief Prince Mohammed bin Nayef launched a counter attack that would see a three-year security crackdown on the group, with thousands of its members thrown into prison.
More than ten years on, the Al Arabiya News Channel is airing TV series on the attacks, promising an inside look into al-Qaeda, after hours of footage from cameras and mobile phones were recovered and released by Saudi security officials.
The documentary series, split into three episodes, was produced for the Al Arabiya News Channel by OR Media, a London-based independent production company.
