In Washington, the Saudi ambassador to the US Prince Bandar bin Sultan condemned extremists and said there is no safe place for Al-Qaeda in the kingdom. ‘We are hunting down the terrorists and flushing them from their hiding places…God willing, we will continue to find them and bring them to harsh justice,’ he said in a statement. ‘Their aim is to take away our security and take over the state. Instead of progress and reform, they want to turn Saudi Arabia into a Taliban society… they will not succeed.’ (MEED 14:11:03)
