    BEIRUT (Sputnik) - Saudi authorities captured the country's "most wanted terrorist" in the city of Qatif in the kingdom's Eastern Province, state-run broadcaster Al Ekhbariya reported on Tuesday.

    "The most wanted terrorist, Hussein Ali Aal Ammar, has been detained in Al-Qatif," the broadcaster said.

    The Saudi Interior Ministry accuses Aal Ammar of a number of major crimes, including the abduction and murder of prosecutor Mohammed Al-Jirani, the shooting of a patrol car in Dammam and an attack on cash collectors.
