Saudi reluctance to admit high death toll creates discrepancy between Saudi and American figures in al Qaeda’s triple suicide attacks on Western housing estates in Riyadh Monday. The Saudis insist on 29 killed while the American figure is 91, including 10 Americans and many other foreigners. Up to 200 were injured.

DEBKAfile’s Intelligence Sources Report: Al Qaeda’s bomb attacks in Riyadh Monday night were opening shots of fresh terror campaign against US and Saudi Arabia timed for end of Iraq War. Probable next targets: oil facilities, airports and airliners.

Hundreds of al Qaeda terrorists await next instructions in Saudi cities – among them US and Canadian nationals and turncoat Saudi soldiers
