Algerian security forces have arrested one person who threatened to bomb the headquarters of Saudi Arabia’s embassy in the capital Algiers, the embassy announced in a statement on Thursday.
The embassy received a call in the early morning hours on Wednesday from a person “who directly threatened to bomb the embassy.”
This prompted embassy officials to inform the relevant Algerian security forces, the statement said.
Algerian state television reported following investigations, the capital’s security forces arrested the suspect.
The suspect was also subjected to medical checks and psychological tests before being prosecuted.
“The Kingdom’s embassy appreciates the Algerian authorities’ unsurprising efforts and assures its trust in the Algerian security forces who did not hesitate to protect the embassy and its employees from this threat, and to bring those who did it to justice.”
