Saudi security forces engaged in a gunbattle with two brothers suspected of belonging to the militant group Islamic State of Iraq and Sryia (ISIS), the Interior Ministry said on Saturday.
The shoot-out followed the distribution of a video online this week allegedly showing one of the brothers shooting dead a cousin, who was a member of the Saudi security forces.
The ministry said one of the brothers Abdul Aziz al-Anzi, 18, was killed, while his brother Saad, 21, was arrested and wounded during the shoot-out in the desert province of Ha’il.
The brothers are accused of killing their cousin, Madous Fayez al-Anzi, on Thursday, which marked the first day of Eid al-Adha.
They are also suspects in shootings that killed two civilians outside a police station and a soldier in separate incidents on Thursday.
