Four people killed,several wounded in Saudi Arabia mosque bombings

A suicide bomber has detonated his
explosives at a Shia mosque in eastern
Saudi Arabia during Friday prayers,
killing four people and wounding
several others, witnesses said.

One witness described a huge
explosion at the Imam Ali Mosque in a
village in the province of Qatif, where
more than 150 people were praying.

An activist told the AFP news agency
that at least four worshippers were
killed, while another source said there
appeared to be at least 30 casualties in
the attack.

Pictures posted on social media
purported to show the devastation, with
dead bodies strewn across the floor and
shattered glass covering the courtyard
of the mosque.
