Three militants killed in clash with security forces in Riyadh

The Interior Ministry has announced that three members of the deviant group have been killed in a clash with Saudi security forces. Seven security officers were wounded in the confrontation. The militants, armed with machine guns and hand grenades, were hiding on the second floor of a house in the Al-Nahda district in the east of the city of Riyadh. Security forces evacuated from the first floor seven women and one child, who had apparently been located there as a shield and a diversion. A search of the house uncovered weapons and documents.
