Saudi Interior Ministry spokesman Maj Gen Mansour al-Turki says that Saudi guards exchanged fire with gunmen in the same area, killing three of them and arresting another. He says a Saudi border guard commander was killed.
SABA linked the attack to al-Qaida, but weapons smugglers and human traffickers also are active in the area.
