DUBAI - Saudi-owned al-Arabia television said on Saturday that two suspected al Qaida militants who had been surrounded inside a government building in southern Saudi Arabia after an attack on a border post with Yemen blew themselves up early on Saturday.

The satellite channel gave no further details on casualties from the blast. Saudi security forces had been searching for militants who had fled after the attack, in which six people, including one suicide bomber and two security personnel, were killed.
