RIYADH (Reuters) - Shots fired from an unidentified car killed two Saudi Arabian policemen in an eastern district of the capital Riyadh in the early hours of Wednesday, the official Saudi Press Agency reported citing an unnamed police spokesman.

The policemen were patrolling in their vehicle at 1:30 a.m. when shots were fired at them, killing Thamer Amran al-Mutairi and Abdulmohsen Khalaf al-Mutairi. Last month two policemen were shot and injured in a similar attack in Riyadh.
