Saudi security forces clashed with "terrorists" who shot and killed two guards Thursday outside a prison in the western city of Jiddah where al-Qaida suspects are being held, state-run media reported. Al-Jazeera television reported late Thursday that two combatants were arrested, but this was not immediately confirmed. The Qatari-based channel did not say whether the arrests had ended the standoff.
