Saudi Arabian weapons dealer killed near Yemen border
Saudi border guards have killed an arms dealer caught in possession of about 100 automatic rifles in the southern province of Najran bordering the Republic of Yemen, a newspaper reported Tuesday.
Al-Watan quoted Najran governor Prince Mishal bin Saud as saying Said bin Faraj bin Mohammed al-Mahri al-Yami, a Saudi national, was killed during a shootout with the guards when he refused orders to surrender and opened fire at the security forces, badly damaging their vehicles.
Yami had in his possession 100 Kalashnikov AK-47 rifles and 100 magazines of ammunition worth some 36,000 dollars, the prince said. (Albawaba.com)
