Saudi's size 'hampering terror clamp'

by Geoffrey Bew from Gulf Daily News (Bahrain)

Deputy Chief of General Intelligence Prince Faisal bin Abdullah al Saud said tough measures were in place to control the movement of people at its boundaries, but said their sheer size meant it was impossible to scrutinise everyone. "No one can give any guarantees," he told the GDN on the sidelines of the security conference. "The Saudi Arabian border is thousands of kilometres long and we are still developing technology and the people. This (terrorism) is a disease that has been planted and unfortunately is part of our nation. The best guarantee we can give is that we are working very hard on our youth, their education and creating prosperity."
