Saudi security forces killed three suspected militants, including an al-Qaida-linked man wanted by the FBI for possible terror threats against the United States, in an apartment-building shootout Tuesday, the Interior Ministry said. One security official was also killed in the hourslong gunfight at the three-story residential building in Jizan, about 600 miles south of the Saudi capital, Riyadh, the ministry said in a statement carried by the official Saudi Press Agency. Two suspected militants also were arrested. The agency said one of the Saudi men killed was Sultan Jubran Sultan al-Qahtani, also known as Zubayr al-Rimi, 29. The FBI has linked the Saudi native to possible terror threats against the United States, and he also appears on a Saudi list of militants connected to May 12 suicide bombings in Riyadh that killed 25 people and nine attackers, according to a Saudi Interior Ministry official.
