Saudi Arabia said on Thursday it had arrested two men from Yemen and Chad on suspicion of planning suicide attacks, days after the United States closed embassies in the region citing an al-Qaida threat.

The pair were detained in late July after they exchanged information on social media about imminent attacks, the official Saudi Press Agency reported, quoting an Interior Ministry official.

It said an investigation was continuing into the pair, who used mobile phones and encrypted electronic communications.
