Al Qaida suspects nabbed

The week's news at a glance.

Jiddah, Saudi Arabia

Saudi police arrested 16 suspected al Qaida terrorists this week and confiscated a massive arsenal of weapons. Police found 20 tons of bomb-making chemicals, grenades, and machine guns buried in a cellar, as well as fake passports, bulletproof vests, and night-vision goggles. “Security forces were able to foil a terrorist plot planned against vital Saudi installations and targets,” an Interior Ministry official said. The arrests are the latest in a nationwide crackdown launched in May, after nine suicide bombers killed 25 residents of a Western housing compound in the capital, Riyadh.
