Saudi newspaper: Chinese-made missiles smuggled into kingdom

from The Associated Press

The daily Okaz, which is deemed close to the government, quoting unnamed officials as saying militants wanted to use the missiles to allegedly target hotels and other buildings in the kingdom. The Saudi Interior Ministry did not say what kind of missiles or what the targets were. Okaz reported Sunday that the missiles were already inside Saudi Arabia ... Last week, the Interior Ministry said authorities arrested 112 alleged members of that cell during the terror sweep. The ministry said the cell was trying to smuggle men to Iraq and Afghanistan for training, after which they would be brought back to Saudi Arabia to try to carry out attacks in the kingdom.
