Only six militants surrender as Saudi amnesty expires

Six militants in total surrendered to Saudi authorities taking up the offer of royal amnesty which has expired, while 12 most-wanted terror suspects remained at large. Saudi authorities hunting down militants behind a wave of deadly attacks in the kingdom did not extend the one-month amnesty despite calls for allowing militants more time to come forward. Two suspects wanted in security-related matters surrendered on the last day of the amnesty period, bringing the total number to six. Only one is on the kingdom’s 26 most-wanted list. Fawzan al-Fawzan was the latest to turn himself in to authorities. He arrived late Thursday with his family in Riyadh after surrendering to the Saudi embassy in Damascus. Another militant, Fayez al-Khushman al-Dossari turned himself in earlier the same evening in the western city of Taef, hours before the end of the amnesty offer. Full Story
