Saudi Arabia Launches Major Detention of Suspected Terrorists

Love| Peace In one of the biggest roundups in years, Saudi Arabia has detained about 100 suspected militants with ties to al-Qaeda. The group of 47 Saudis and 51 foreigners are suspected of planning terrorist attacks on Saudi oil facilities and security forces.

Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula was formed in January 2009 by a merger between two regional offshoots of the Islamist militant network in neighbouring Yemen and Saudi Arabia.

Saudi spokesman Mansour al-Turki said the three cells were working independently of each other and had imminent plans to launch their attacks. via BBC News
