Prince Bandar bin Sultan also said the kingdom received warning before the May 12 bombings that killed 34 people at three housing compounds outside of Riyadh, the Saudi capital. “Yes, we had warning, yes we had heightened alert but we never had a specific time and place designated,” Prince Bandar told reporters in Riyadh.
