Prince Nayef briefs Shura Council on terrorism and weapons smuggling

Minister of Interior Prince Nayef bin Abdulaziz, after attending a session of the Consultative Council (Majlis Al-Shura) yesterday, told a press conference that the purpose of his briefing had been to advise on how Saudi security forces are tackling the phenomenon of violence. Weapons used by the deviant group, he said, had been smuggled into the country. Mechanisms are in place, however, to prevent smuggling from Yemen, with Saudi-Yemeni relations strong following resolution of all border issues.
