Attack on French Consulate in Jeddah

Riyadh(ANN)-Saudi national wounded a guard in a knife attack at the French consulate in the country’s Red Sea port city of Jeddah on Thursday.

Police officials in Mecca province, where Jeddah is situated, said the attacker, whose identity was not immediately disclosed, was a Saudi citizen.

They did not provide any information about the nationality of the guard, and only said he had sustained minor injuries.

“The assailant was apprehended by Saudi security forces immediately after the attack. The guard was taken to hospital and his life is not in danger,” the French embassy in Riyadh said in a statement.

The diplomatic mission strongly condemned the attack, and urged its nationals in the ultra-conservative Persian Gulf kingdom to exercise “extreme vigilance.”
