At least four Saudi officers have been shot dead and four others wounded after gunmen stormed their checkpoint in the southwestern border region of Asir. The security authorities succeeded in identifying a number of those involved in the crime and arrested two of them, both Saudis.

The announcement says further information may not be provided being an investigation is penalized and most of the attackers are all nationals.

A third Saudi suspect opened fire as he tried to escape, killing another officer and wounding four others, SPA added.

Security forces fatally shot the suspect, who was identified by Saudi media as Bandar Mohammed Ali al-Shahri.

Saudi Arabia has been embroiled in a long-running conflict with southern neighbour Yemen since March 2015. The kingdom launched a coalition of Arab states fighting to roll back Iran-backed Huthi rebels in Yemen and restore the country's internationally-recognised government to power. Houthis did not claim responsibility for Thursday's attack.
