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 guard 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.

Ghamdi said he had been in contact with border guards of "neighboring countries" to take necessary measures to determine the source of mortar fire and prevent it recurring.
