Iraq detains hundreds of Saudi militants
http://www.khaleejtimes.ae/DisplayArticleNew.asp?col=&s...

RIYADH - About 160 Saudi militants have been tried in Iraq for taking part in its insurgency while hundreds others are in detention, a top Iraqi official told a local newspaper on Sunday.

Some 160 Saudi nationals arrested in Iraq have been put on trial while hundreds others await their trials, Iraqs national security advisor Muwaffaq Al Rubaie told the Okaz newspaper.

There are hundreds of Saudis in Iraq. Many were killed in suicide attacks, he said, claiming that foreign militants infiltrate Iraq from a neighbouring country, in an apparent reference to Syria.

The Los Angeles Times reported on Sunday that 45 percent of all foreign militants targeting US troops and Iraqi security forces were from Saudi Arabia, according to an unnamed senior US military officer and Iraqi lawmakers.
