Four Saudi officers dead in Asir checkpoint attack


Four officers were shot dead and four others wounded today when their check post came under gunfire in southern Asir province in Saudi Arabia,.

State media said citing the interior ministry, three officers were instantly killed when the outpost came under attack, without specifying who was behind it.

Local authorities apprehended two suspects and a third opened fire as he tried to escape, killing the fourth officer. Authorities did not name the suspects.

Saudi Arabia has been embroiled in a long running conflict with southern neighbour Yemen since March 2015. The kingdom launched a coalition of Arab states fighting to roll back Iran-backed Huthi rebels in Yemen and restore the country’s internationally-recognised government to power.
