al-Qaida Suspect in Saudi Attacks Dies

The top al-Qaida fugitive wanted in the Riyadh suicide bombings died in an explosion Thursday, an Interior Ministry official said. Turki Nasser al-Dandani blew himself up in the northern province of al-Jawf, 560 miles north of the capital Riyadh, the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity. The official gave no further details on the blast. Al-Dandani, a member of the Osama bin Laden al-Qaida terror network, was being pursued for his alleged involvement in the suicide bombings of Westerners’ housing compounds in Riyadh on May 12, which killed 25 people as well as nine attackers. He became the most wanted man in Saudi Arabia after last week’s arrest of the suspected mastermind of the attacks, Ali Abd al-Rahman al-Faqasi al-Ghamdi. Al-Ghamdi surrendered on Saturday at the home of Deputy Interior Minister Prince Mohammed bin Nayaf. Full Story
