Saudi Arabia published Sunday a list of 47 people wanted for suspected links to Al-Qaeda who are all abroad, the interior ministry said in a statement. "Authorities have identified 47 wanted Saudis who are abroad and who adopt the deviant ideology," the ministry said, according to AFP.

The interior ministry added that it had passed the list to the international police, Interpol, and advised the suspects to hand themselves in at Saudi embassies "to repatriate them and reunite them with their families."

The Saudi justice ministry announced on Saturday that by the end of November last year 765 people suspected of links to Al-Qaeda have been tried and sentenced.
