A roadside bomb attack on a police patrol car in al-Ahsa in east Saudi Arabia wounded a policeman on Thursday evening, Saudi state news agency SPA reported on Friday.

The attack was in a parking lot and in caused damage to five cars, SPA reported, citing a statement by an interior ministry spokesman.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility but the attack resembled previous ones by Islamic State on security forces or Shi'ites, who the jihadist group considers to be heretics.

The oil-producing Eastern Province is home to Saudi Arabia's Shi'ite community.
