SAUDI ARABIA CLAIMS IT HAS STOPPED ISLAMIC STATE PLANNED ATTACKS, 400 CAPTURED

Saudi Arabia says it has broken up planned Islamic State attacks, while announcing it has arrested over 400 people in raids.
In a statement Saturday carried on the official state news agency, the Interior Ministry also accused those arrested of conducting several attacks, including an Islamic State-claimed suicide bomb in May that killed 21 people in the oil-rich eastern region. It was the deadliest militant assault in the kingdom in more than a decade. The announcement came a day after an Islamic State attack in a crowded marketplace in Iraq's eastern province killed 115 people.
