Riyadh foils Daesh attack and busts spy ring

Saudi Arabia has announced the arrest of Saudi citizens and foreigners involved in espionage activities.

The Saudis and the foreigners targeted the kingdom’s social peace by stirring up seditions and prejudicing its national unity, the official added.

The authorities said they foiled an attempt by the Daesh group to carry out a suicide attack using explosive belts on two offices belonging to the Ministry of Defence in the capital Riyadh.

An official named Ahmad Yasser Al Kaldi and Ammar Ali Mohammad as the two men tasked with carrying out the terror attack.

The two men, Yemeni nationals, were “neutralised” and arrested before they reached their target, he said.
