Kingdom denies media report of U.S. marines in Al-Khobar siege

Saudi Arabia has denied a news report published in the Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Watan claiming that U.S. marines had helped Saudi security forces to surround and storm the residential compound in Al-Khobar where terrorists were holding hostages. This is completely incorrect, and the Kingdom resents such a falsified report in a Gulf newspaper that would be expected to avoid malicious and baseless news items and  seek credibility in its reporting.
