Saudi Arabia Offers Rewards for Terror Arrests - 2003-12-07


The Saudi government is offering rewards for information leading to arrests of suspected terrorists.

The Saudis Sunday published the names and photographs of 26 of its most wanted suspects that it says were involved in recent acts of terror.

The government also announced substantial cash rewards for information leading to arrests of the suspects.

For example, $267,000 would be paid for information leading to the arrest of one suspect. However, that amount would more than triple, to $1.3 million, for information leading to the arrest of more than one suspect. And the government is offering $1.9 million for information that helps foil an attempted terrorist attack.

In May, suicide bombers attacked three housing compounds, killing a total of 35 people. In response, a widespread crackdown on Islamic militants began that has resulted in hundreds of arrests.

Last month, 17 people were killed at a Riyadh housing complex, following another suicide car bombing.
