Interior Ministry says suspects were involved in several deadly attacks in kingdom

Saudi Arabia announced on Saturday it had foiled planned Islamic State attacks in the kingdom and arrested more than 400 suspects in an anti-terrorism sweep.

The announcement came a day after a powerful blast in neighboring Iraq killed more than 100 people in one of the country's deadliest single attacks since US troops pulled out in 2011.
