It was first of the three attacks targeting the kingdom on July 4, including one outside of the mosque grounds in Medina. Another happened at a Shiite mosque in the east of the country.

 

 



The attacker has been identified as 35-year-old Abdullah Waqar Khan, who was living with his wife and her parents for the past 12 years in Jeddah.

Pakistani Foreign Ministry spokesman Nafees Zakaria said authorities in Islamabad were working to get more details about the man. He condemned the attacks and expressed solidarity with Saudi Arabia.
