KARACHI - Unidentified attackers threw two hand grenades at the Saudi Arabian consulate in the Pakistani city of Karachi on Wednesday but no one was hurt, police said.

One of the grenades landed inside the compound and one outside and the attackers then fled, a police official said.

Al-Qaida is violently opposed to the Saudi government and has vowed revenge for the killing of its leader, Saudi-born Osama bin Laden, by US special forces in Pakistan on May 2.
