Saudi Arabia offers one-month amnesty to al Qaeda suspects
Saudi King Fahd offered an amnesty to al Qaeda suspects who turn themselves in within a month, in a speech delivered on his behalf by Crown Prince Abdullah and aired on state television.
"All those affiliated to this group which wronged itself and who were not captured...have a chance to return to God and engage in soul-searching," he declared.
"We swear by God that nothing will prevent us from striking with our full might" anyone who ignores this offer, Abdullah conveyed.
"Those who turn themselves in of their own will within a month of this speech will be secure in the security of God as far as they are concerned, and will be treated according to God's law pertaining to the rights of others."
The latest attack in Saudi Arabia was the June 12 kidnapping of American engineer Paul M. Johnson, Jr., whose beheading was announced six days later on the Internet. (Albawaba.com)
