Three separate explosions by suspected suicide bombers have occurred in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia as the annual Ramadan fast draws to a close.

The first suicide blast, which was foiled by security operatives, took place near a U.S. consulate in the coastal city of Jeddah.

A spokesperson of the Saudi government said the attack was carried out by an “expatriate in his 30s”.

Hours later, Al-Arabiya network reported another suicide blast near a mosque in the city of Qatif, in the Kingdom’s Eastern Province.

Some few minutes ago, Al Arabiya again reported that another suicide bomber “blew himself up near a police post at the Prophet’s Mosque in Madinah.”
