A suicide bomber has attacked the Saudi city of Medina, close to the Prophet’s Mosque, one of Islam’s holiest sites, according to local media reports.
The bomber detonated his device as security officers were breaking their Ramadan fast, al-Arabiya TV said. The suicide bombing killed two security officers, Reuters reported.
The attack comes on the same day that two suicide bombers struck different cities in Saudi Arabia, one of them near a U.S. consulate.
