bomb blast at KSA

Abha : A mosque in Saudi Arabia used by Interior Ministry special forces in the southwestern city of Abha came under attack of ISIS bomb attack, killing 17 people, according to the official Saudi Al-Ekhbariya news channel

A Saudi Interior Ministry official told the Associated Press that the bomb targeted police trainees as they were in the middle of prayer.

State media reported that the mosque belongs to an Interior Ministry emergency services' post in Abha.

Ekhbariya said at least 10 of the dead were members of the security forces.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility. But blame is likely to fall on ISIS (Daesh) , whose local affiliate has claimed responsibility for a number of attacks in recent months.

A suicide bomber that struck a mosque in the eastern village of Al Qudeeh in May killed 22 people. That was the deadliest assault in the Kingdom in more than a decade, and was followed a week later by another suicide bombing attack outside another mosque that left four dead.
