Interior Minister praises security forces

Minister of Interior Prince Nayef bin Abdulaziz held a brief press conference at Qasim Airport yesterday, and praised the role of the security forces in preserving the country’s security and stability. In particular, he commended the prudent manner in which security officers contained the recent incident in the town of Ar-Rass. Members of the deviant group, he said, are defaming Islam in carrying out their acts of terror, and it is essential to confront them. This is the responsibility, however, not only of the security forces, but of Muslim scholars and sociologists, who must combat the deviant ideology.
