Two "dangerous terrorists" have been killed in a Saudi security operation in the capital Riyadh, the Saudi state news agency SPA reports, citing an Interior Ministry spokesman.

The agency said a security officer was also wounded in Saturday's operation in the al-Yasmin neighbourhood in northern Riyadh.

Saudi media identified one of the two militants as Taye' al-Say'ari and said he was being sought as an expert in making explosive belts used by militants in suicide attacks.
