Saudi police, civilians wounded in shootings

A policeman and two civilians have been wounded in shootings in the eastern province of Qatif in Saudi Arabia, AFP reported Monday (July 10th).

Qatif has been hit by a string of attacks over the past week, some of them deadly.

Police said an off-duty officer was wounded late Sunday when gunmen opened fire on his car as he was driving by private farmland.

And two civilians were admitted with gunshot wounds early Monday to a hospital in Qatif's town of Awamiya, police added.

All three are in stable condition.

Violence over the past week has gripped Qatif, where two policemen were killed in two separate bombings targeting their patrols on Tuesday and Thursday (July 6th).
