This is interesting, I have read reports that the Saudi family paid Bin Laden off not to wage jihad inside the kingdom. Maybe their relationship is deteriorating, if it is in fact al qaeda

I had heard that as well. So, its an interesting occurance. I someone stirring the shit? Or is the deal off?

I guess we will see.

If the news ever reports on it. This coverage is fucking unreal. The spin is enough to make me dizzy.

More info

Three explosions rocked a residential compound in the Saudi capital Saturday night, killing at least two people and wounding 86, in what a government official said was a suicide car bombing.

The midnight blasts came after an unknown number of attackers broke into the upscale compound of about 200 villas and exchanged fire with security guards, a Saudi government official said.


An Interior Ministry official told The Associated Press the attack was a suicide car bombing. He said two people were killed, both security guards, and 86 were wounded.


However, immediately after the explosion, there were widely conflicting reports of the number of dead. An official at a Riyadh hospital said dozens of people were killed, but, when contacted again, said only that some people were dead.


Diplomats and officials said most of the residents of the compound's 200 villas were Lebanese. Some Saudis also live there, plus a few German, French and Italian families.


Officials at the King Khaled Specialist Hospital and the King Faisal Special Hospital & Research Center said the two hospitals received 38 wounded people.


Flames could be seen still burning at the compound several hours after the explosion. U.S. State Department spokeswoman Amanda Batt in Washington said no Americans were hurt.


Al-Arabiya television showed shots of bloodied men and women being treated at hospitals.


State-run Saudi TV aired live footage from the devastated section of the residential compound, showing collapsed buildings, piles of rubble, twisted metal and debris spread over a large area.


TV footage showed a large crater, apparently gouged out by an explosion, as emergency workers poured over the bomb blast site, which security forces had sealed off.


Huge flames were seen leaping into the night sky as helicopters hovered overhead, beaming search lights down onto the bomb ravaged area.


A woman living in the compound told The Associated Press in a telephone interview that "there is lot of blood" at the scene of the explosions.


"I am extremely terrified; I am really scared. I felt it was an earthquake (news - web sites)," the woman said without identifying herself.


"Lots of houses are damaged, windows shattered," she said, adding that police sirens wailed throughout the compound. "Ambulances were picking up lots of people. It looks like there are lots of people who died."
