Saudi Arabia Issues New List of 36 Wanted Militants

Saudi Arabia has issued a new list of some 36 wanted militants who are suspected of having ties to a series of terrorist attacks in the kingdom over the last two years.

Officials say 29 of the suspects on the list are Saudis. Others include three men from Chad, one Moroccan, a Kuwaiti, a Yemeni and a Mauritanian. Some 15 of the 36 suspects are believed to be living inside Saudi Arabia.

Official media published the list Tuesday. It is the third such list of wanted militants that authorities have issued in recent years.

Since 2003, Saudi Arabia has been hit by a series of terrorist attacks on Saudis and foreigners. Security forces have since killed or arrested dozens of militants.
