Comments: Riyadh bombings suspect arrested

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia — Police detained a man in connection with the Nov. 8 terror bombings against a Riyadh housing compound, the Interior Ministry said Wednesday, the first arrest in the attack that killed 17 people. Police found the militant to be hiding in a place that contained a small arsenal, with a surface-to-air missile, rocket-propelled grenade launchers, grenades, AK-47 assault rifles and explosives, the ministry said in a statement. The arrest came a day after the U.S. Embassy warned of a potential new terror attack against a Western housing complex in the Saudi capital. The embassy said Tuesday that militants have the Seder Village compound under "active surveillance" and barred embassy employees from visiting housing compounds in Riyadh at night. an Associated Press information
