Saudi Guard, Three Gunmen Killed In Clash On Yemen Border: Agency

Gunmen killed the commander of a Saudi border patrol on the frontier with Yemen on Friday and security forces shot dead three of the attackers in the ensuing firefight, the Saudi state news agency SPA said. SPA, citing Saudi Interior Ministry spokesman Major General Mansour al-Turki, said the attack had occurred at the Wadia border crossing but did not say who was behind the shootings. A Yemeni official, commenting on what appeared to be the same group of gunmen, told Reuters suspected al Qaeda militants in two cars had opened fire on Yemeni border guards at the Wadia crossing on Friday before crossing over to the Saudi side.
