Saudi Arabia issues list of wanted ”terrorist” suspects
The Saudi interior ministry announced Tuesday a new list of 36 wanted terrorist suspects, saying 21 were out of the country while 15 were at large in the kingdom.
The ministry urged those whose names are on the list to surrender, promising more lenient treatment if they do so. The 15 suspects the ministry said were in the kingdom include 14 Saudi nationals and one Moroccan. Among the 21 suspects outside the kingdom three are from Chad, one from Mauritania, one from Yemen and one from Kuwait. The 14 others, the ministry said, are Saudis.
Most of those on the list are aged in their twenties. The statement said the list of 36 are suspected of involvement in terrorist activities within the kingdom and of being members of al-Qaeda network.
It also promised financial rewards to anyone providing information on any of those on the list. Anyone providing information on any of the suspects that leads to the arrest of a suspect will receive SR1 million (US$266,000). If more than one suspect is arrested, the reward will be SR5 million (US$1.3 million). Reward for information that helps stop a terrorist operation is SR7 million (us$1.86 million), it said.
