Denial of U.K. report of National Guard complicity in terror acts

Minister of Culture and Information Dr. Fouad Al-Farsi has called “fabricated allegations and completely incorrect” yesterday’s report in the London weekly newspaper ‘The Independent on Sunday’ alleging that some members of the National Guard knew beforehand about the bombings which occurred in a residential housing complex in Riyadh last May and provided inside help to Al-Qaeda. It was clear, he said, that the newspaper report was motivated by hostility, and the known anti-terrorism efforts by the National Guard and by all other Saudi security agencies are the best proof of its lack of truth.
