Saudi police have arrested 11 suspected militants, including one allegedly involved in last year's foiled suicide attack on the world's largest oil processing facility, the Interior Ministry said Thursday. The official Saudi Press Agency, quoting an unidentified ministry official, said the men were all Saudi and belonged to "the deviant group," the term Saudi officials use to refer to Islamic militants and members of al-Qaida. The official said the 11 incited and financed the "deviant" group's activities, and authorities have evidence that one of them has alleged links to the Abqaiq oil installation, according to SPA.
