    DAMMAM: A bombing took place outside a Shia mosque in Saudi Arabia's Dammam city at the time of Friday prayers.

    Reuters reported that a car exploded near a Shia mosque in Dammam on Friday, killing two people, a witness said.

    The witness, identified only as Ahmed, told Reuters he was with his family near the mosque when "a quick explosion" happened. He did not know the cause of the blast.

    He said acquaintances at the mosque told him an attendant was killed along with a bomber when he tried to prevent him from reaching it.

    Photos posted by journalists on Twitter showed thick black clouds of smoke and a fire blazing at the purported scene of the blast.

    Initial reports state the bombing was carried out by a suicide bomber. There are some reports that suggest the bomb was planted in a car.

    Last Friday, a suicide bomber detonated a bomb at a mosque in Shia-majority Qatif during Friday weekly prayers killing 21 people and wounding several others. The self-styled Islamic State (IS) group said in an online statement that it had carried out the deadly suicide bomb attack last week.

    Time for another Saudi clean-up operation like in 2002 when they captured/killed dozens of Al Qaeda.

    Oh, at least you have some doubts that bombing a mosque is a bad thing to do, so there is still hope for progress.

    Saudi Arabia should launch full scale invasion against IS and revenge the killing of innocent people.

    I think it's Hezbollat Gulf arm, which has been involved in similar acts to rile up Shiia minorities in the Gulf, in the hopes of forming some kind of civil defense/militia Shiia armed groups. Which is near impossible in kSA anyway.

    Of course, because Saudi citizens don't have a shining story of joining and creating terror groups like ISIS or Al-Qaeda, blowing themselves up in massive numbers across ME among civilians. So it's highly unlikely that another nutjob from Najd has added to number of Saudi terrorists, hence it must be a Shia inside job. You demonstrated such a high level of wisdom and intelligence here.
