Islamic militants busted in Saudi Arabia
2003-10-20
Authorities in Saudi Arabia have announced the arrest of a number of Islamic militants who are terror suspects.
What number?
They were captured during raids in the capital Riyadh, the Red Sea port of Jeddah and four other locations.
That's a minumum of six...
The number of arrests was not revealed.
But it's at least six...
Security forces also seized big caches of arms and munitions in Riyadh and Jeddah, including plastic explosives, bombs, machine-guns and bomb-belts used by suicide bombers. The raids are the latest action in a crackdown by the Saudi Government following suicide bombings in Riyadh in May that killed 35 people.

They should have started this round up two years ago. I suppose it makes a difference when your own ox gets gored.
