MANAMA, Bahrain (AP) _ Al-Qaida suicide bombers are threatening
to attack more Saudi oil facilities.
The terror group issued a statement on a militant Web site
threatening new attacks and claiming responsibility for yesterday's
foiled attack in eastern Saudi Arabia.
Two suicide bombers tried to drive cars packed with explosives
into the world's largest oil processing facility but security
guards opened fire and the vehicles exploded outside the gates. Two
security guards and the bombers were killed.
The Al-Qaida statement said the attack was meant to stop what it
calls ``the crusaders'' and the Jews from plundering Muslim wealth.
Saudi Arabia's oil minister met with the U-S commerce secretary
in Riyadh today and assured him that the kingdom would keep the oil
flowing despite terrorist threats.
