Saudi shooting claims fourth foreign victim


A shooting in Saudi Arabia has claimed a fourth victim. A French teenager has died of his wounds a day after three other French nationals were killed in what appears to be a militant attack. It would be the first of its kind in three years. The men who were French expatriates living in Riyadh came under assault during a desert trip on Monday. They were part of a group of nine French citizens based in Saudi Arabia who had been visiting historic sites between the holy city of Medina and Tabuk, further north.

The assault has sparked fears of a resurgence of violence in Saudi Arabia which was the scene of deadly attacks by Islamist militants in 2003 and 2004.
