Saudi Kingdom to test warning sirens
The Saudi Kingdom is set to test a siren warning system nation-wide next week, according to a Saturday newspaper report.
Sirens throughout the country will sound at midday next Saturday to "verify safety and readiness" for use in case of emergency, an unidentified official source at the Saudi kingdom's civil defense told Okaz.
However, the test was "not related to the existing circumstances in the region, or an indication that a possible (United States) war on Iraq is nearing," the source added. (Albawaba.com)
