RIYADH - Six mortar shells landed near a remote Saudi border post close to Iraq and Kuwait on Wednesday, but caused no damage, the kingdom's border guards agency said on Thursday.

"Six mortar shells fell in an uninhabited area near the new al-Auja border guard center of Hafr al-Batin in the Eastern Province. Thank God no damage resulted from it," said General Mohammed al-Ghamdi, the border guard media spokesman, in a statement carried by the official Saudi Press Agency.
