Shiite Mosque Suicide Attack Kills 4   05/29 06:25

   RIYADH, Saudi Arabia (AP) -- The official Saudi Press Agency says a suicide 
bomber blew himself up near a Shiite mosque in an eastern Saudi city and killed 
four people.

   It said the bomber tried to enter the Mosque in Dammam, a Shiite dominated 
city, during Friday prayers and detonated his bomb in the parking lot after 
being stopped by security guards. It added that guards approached the car as it 
was parking and that the driver detonated the bomb. It was unclear if the 
bomber was among the four.

   It was the second attack against a Shiite mosque in Saudi. An attack last 
week killed 21 people and the Islamic State extremist group claimed 
responsibility for the attack.
