The state-run Saudi Press Agency said that the authorities arrested two would-be suicide bombers, identified as Ahmad Yaser Al Kaldi and Ammar Ali Muhammad, before they reached the ministry's offices.

They were allegedly preparing to attack two defence ministry headquarters in Riyadh, it reported, without saying when the arrests were made.

Two Yemeni suicide bombers and two Saudis were arrested and suicide vests and arms were seized from their hideout in Al-Ramal district in Riyadh, according to an official source at the Presidency of State Security.

Saudi Arabia has previously been hit by deadly bombing and shooting attacks by IS militants targeting security forces and members of the minority community.

SPA said two explosive belts, each weighing 7 kilos (15 pounds) were seized along with firearms, homemade grenades and non-firearm weapons.

Islamic State has for years criticized the leadership of Western-allied Saudi Arabia, the world's top oil exporter, accusing it of deviating from their strict interpretation of Islam and advancing the interests of their USA enemies. It said they worked for "the benefit of foreign parties against the security of the kingdom and its interests".

The Reuters news agency cited an anonymous Saudi security source as saying the suspects were accused of "espionage activities" for, among others, the Muslim Brotherhood, which Riyadh has classified as a terrorist organization.

On August 4, the Saudi-led coalition aircraft struck a home in Sa'ada, killing nine members of a family, including six children, ages 3 through 12.

Several suspects are in custody and one of them is a member of the armed Houthi movement, the source told Reuters.
