JEDDAH, Saudi Arabia - Saudi Arabia has started to try 85 alleged members of an al-Qaida-linked cell which attacked three housing compounds for foreigners in the capital Riyadh in 2003, local newspapers reported on Monday.

The attacks, which took place on a single night, killed 20 people according to Saudi Arabia's official news agency, and marked the start of a violent al-Qaida campaign that included plots against military bases, foreigners and industrial and energy facilities between 2003-06.

A spokesman from the Saudi Justice Ministry did not respond to calls or messages for comment about the trial.
