The top al-Qaida official sought by Saudi Arabia for his role in the May suicide attacks in the Saudi capital was killed in a gun battle as police moved in to arrest him.
Authorities in Saudi Arabia have arrested at least five men allegedly involved in the May 12 suicide bombings in Riyadh, the Saudi interior minister announced Wednesday.
