1 Dead in Riyadh Blast Claimed by IS

An improvised explosive device planted next to a police station south of the Saudi capital Riyadh killed one person, the Saudi Interior Ministry said in a statement carried on state news agency SPA on Sunday. The ministry said at least three police cars were damaged in the explosion at a parking lot on Saturday night that killed an expatriate man, but gave no further details on who was behind the attack, Reuters reported. An affiliate of the self-styled Islamic State terrorist group, calling itself the Nejd Province branch of the organization, claimed the blast, which took place in Al-Dilam, a small city located about 100 km south of Riyadh. The group said in a statement earlier on Sunday it had set off two explosive devices in front of the police station and caused damage to vehicles, but did not specify casualties.
