Deputy Interior Minister holds press conference

Deputy Minister of the Interior Prince Ahmad bin Abdulaziz held a press conference yesterday evening in Riyadh following a graduation ceremony for border guards. To a question on the case of the Saudi student murdered in the United States, he said it has been referred to court, adding that the Saudi authorities are working for the extradition of one of the suspects since this case involves only Saudis, and is a personal, not a state matter. Concerning the recent explosion that injured an American doctor, he expressed regret at the incident. Information is available, he said, and whoever is behind it will be found.
