SAUDI ARABIA: ‘ SUICIDE ATTACK & SHOOT-OUT ON BORDER WITH IRAQ KILLS TWO GUARDS ‘

#AceWorldNews – SAUDI ARABIA:Jan.05: Saudi Arabia’s Interior Ministry reports that two of its guards have been killed in a shoot-out and suicide attack on the kingdom’s frontier with Iraq.

One of those killed was a senior officer, ministry spokesman Major General Mansour Turki told Reuters.

An assault of the kind is rare, as the border is heavily defended by a series of raised earth barriers and fences.

In the past, it was usually targeted from a distance.
