“On May 12 [2003], a suicide bomb set off by Al Qaeda kills at least 11 people in Riyadh [Saudi Arabia] and injures more than 120. The explosion takes place in a compound that houses mainly Arab families and is seen as a direct attack on the House of Saud rather than Westerners.”

 – Craig Unger, House of Bush, House of Saud, Page 305
