Following Monday shootout, Saudi security forces look for additional nine ''terrorists''
Saudi Arabia's wanted man, Ahmad Naser Al-Dakheel was killed in Monday's shootout between a group of armed men and police forces in the town of Gadhi, in the region of Qasim, a Saudi security source was quoted Tuesday as saying by Okaz daily.
Al-Dakheel was no. 13 on the list of 19 "terrorists" that Saudi officials had named on May 7th and was the mastermind of the Mecca shooting, which killed five of his associates, two police officers and resulted in the arrest of 12 men.
The source told the Saudi newspaper that with the death of Al-Dakheel, the Saudi security forces have made great progress by eliminating two of the 19 wanted men; the other one was Youssef Al-Eiriry who was killed in clashes with security forces earlier this year.
Monday's operation resulted in the killing of six wanted persons, injuring another and arresting four persons for harboring the culprits at their house.
Following Monday's incident, Saudi security forces are still looking for the following nine wanted persons: Othman al-Umary, Rakan Al-Saikhan, Bandr al-Ghamdy, Mohammed al-Alawi, Abdulaziz Abdulmehsen, Khaled Haj (Yemeni) and Faisal Al-Dakheel. (Albawaba.com)
