DUBAI (Reuters) - Saudi security forces engaged in a gunbattle with two brothers suspected of belonging to the militant group Islamic State, the Interior Ministry said on Saturday, killing one of the suspects and a soldier.

The shoot-out followed the distribution of a video online this week allegedly showing one of the brothers shooting dead a cousin, who was a member of the Saudi security forces.
