The official Saudi Press Agency says a suicide bomber blew himself up near a Shiite mosque in an eastern Saudi city and killed four people.

It said the bomber tried to enter the Mosque in Dammam, a Shiite-dominated city, during Friday prayers and detonated his bomb in the parking lot after being stopped by security guards.
