DUBAI - Saudi Arabia has arrested three Saudis over the November 22 shooting of a Danish man in Riyadh, and initial investigations show the attack was carried out in support of the Islamic State militant group, the kingdom's official news agency said.

The Saudi Press Agency (SPA) quoted an interior ministry spokesman as saying security forces also recovered the handgun used in the shooting, and that the assailants had been trained to carry out the attack two weeks before it had happened.
