Saudi security checkpoint targeted with guns and explosives

DUBAI: Four attackers targeted a security checkpoint with guns and explosives in eastern Saudi Arabia as they tried to flee the country, leading to the death of two and the arrest of two others, Saudi-owned Al Arabiya television said on Sunday.

The broadcaster, citing its correspondent, said the incident occurred at Abu Hadriyah, a highway connecting the Kingdom’s Eastern Province with neighbouring Bahrain and Kuwait. It reported two injuries among the security forces.
