RIYADH, SAUDI ARABIA: As the investigation into the Saudi Arab attacks continues, the suicide bomber that detonated a bomb at a parking lot outside the Prophet’s Mosque (PBUH) killing four security men, has been identified as Umer Abdul Haadi, claimed the Arab media.

“Security men noticed a suspicious person among those approaching the Prophet’s Mosque in an open area used as parking lots for visitors’ cars. As they confronted him, he blew himself up with an explosive belt, which resulted in his death and the martyrdom of four of the security men,” a Saudi security spokesman said.

The Saudi ministry, in a tweet on its official social media page, named the Jeddah bomber as a 35-year-old Abdullah Qalzar Khan.

Khan was a resident in Jeddah for almost 12 years along with his wife and her parents and worked as a driver in the kingdom, it added.

On Monday, Saudi security men noticed a suspicious man near the parking lot of Dr Suleiman Faqeeh Hospital in Jeddah near the US diplomatic mission.

When they moved in to check he blew himself up with a suicide belt inside the hospital parking. Two security officers were wounded as a result of the incident.

Suicide bombers struck the cities of Madina, Qatif and Jeddah in Saudi Arabia on Monday, killing at least four security officers in an apparently coordinated campaign of attacks as Saudis prepared to break their fast on the penultimate day of the holy month of Ramazan.
