The Interior Ministry announced that 166 convicted "extremists" have graduated from the government's rehabilitation program.

Saudi Arabia will soon open a luxury rehabilitation center in Riyadh for al Qaeda militants. There is already a rehab center in Jeddah, and three more are in the works. A total of 2,336 al Qaeda operatives have gone through the rehab program so far; some have returned to jihad, including Said al Shihri, who later became deputy leader of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula. The religious program at the centers is ultra-conservative and similar to al Qaeda's ideology.
Arab interior ministers at a security meeting in Riyadh accused Iran of supplying "logistic help to terrorist operations" in Bahrain and Yemen. They also congratulated the security services in both countries for "dismantling cells and uncovering dangerous terror plots."
