Saudi official denies complicity in escape of detainees from Milz prison

RIYADH, July 10 (KUNA) -- A Saudi security official denied complicity of Saudi security men in the escape of seven detainees from Milz prison in Riyadh last Thursday.

The Ministry of Interior's Security spokesman Major General Mansour Al-Turki said in statements published in Okath newspaper Monday that the reports which claim Saudi security men helped the detainees escape are baseless.

Saudi security men are loyal to their country and king and they are determined to exert all efforts in fighting terrorism in all its forms, he said.

Rewards have been issued for any person who gives information that leads to the capture of the fugitives or that leads to the foiling of terror plots, he said.

All the fugitives are radical Islamists who have played a supportive role in terrorism in the kingdom.

Saudi Arabia announced the escape of the seven terrorists from Milz prison in Riyadh last Saturday. The fugitives are six Saudis and one Yemeni.
