Suicide bomber killed in US consulate blast in Jeddah


A suspected suicide bomber was killed on Monday after blowing himself up near the US consulate in Saudi Arabia’s Jeddah city, officials said.

Two security officers sustained injuries “as a result of the failed bombing”, Al Jazeera reported.

According to Local media reports the attacker parked his car outside a mosque opposite to the consulate and shortly afterwards detonated his device after being tackled by security guards.

The Jeddah consulate was the scene of a militant attack in 2004, which claimed nine lives.
