In Memory of the lives of 15 Makkah Schoolgirls, lost when their school burnt down on Monday, 11th March, 2002. The Religious Police would not allow them to leave the building, nor allow the Firemen to enter.
One down, 23 to go
Our security forces are still lamentably slow in picking up terrorists in our midst.
Saudi forces kill two armed fighters
Two wanted Saudi armed fighters have been killed in a shootout with security forces in a residential quarter of the capital.
The clashes took place around midday on Monday in the al-Nasim quarter, witnesses said.
They said the two suspects were on a 26-strong most wanted list of suspected Islamist fighters alleged to have links with bombings that killed 52 people in Riyadh in May and November 2003.
According to earlier official accounts, the list, issued in December, was narrowed to 23 after one fighter was killed in a clash with security forces, another surrendered, and a third died of his wounds after he was injured in a shootout with police and left to die by his comrades.
It's fairly common knowledge that these guys keep getting tipped off from within the security forces. Like the time that about 20 were in a house and surrounded, but miraculously shot their way out and got away scot-free.
