Text size Aa Aa

 
At least five people have been shot dead in the east of Saudi Arabia.

Nine others have been wounded in the attack in the al-Ahsa district, one of two main centres of the country’s minority Shi’ite Muslims.

Three gunmen wearing masks are reported to have opened fire on a group of people leaving what is thought to be a place of worship.

Shi’ite Muslims around the world are holding ceremonies to mark the holy day of Ashura.
