Attack in Saudi Arabia – level 2
In a series of suicide bombings in Saudi Arabia, four people died and five others were injured. The attacks came as Saudis prepared to celebrate Eid Al-Fitr, marking the end of the holy month of Ramadan.
In Medina, there was an attack in the car park of the Prophet's Mosque, the second holiest site in Islam. The Prophet Muhammed founded the mosque in 622, and it is his burial place. Millions of pilgrims visit it every year.
Elsewhere, another suicide bomber struck a mosque in the largely Shia provence of Qatif. Another bomber attacked the US consulate in Jeddah.
No one claimed responsibility for these attacks, but many people think that it is the Islamic State.
Difficult words: found (start, establish), pilgrim (a person who journeys to a holy place), strike (attack, hit).
