A suicide bomber killed at least 15 people today (August 6, 2015) -- including 12 members of a Saudi police force -- when he detonated explosives in a mosque in southern Saudi Arabia, according to the NY Times website.
The bombing was the deadliest attack in recent years on Saudi Arabia's police forces, and the most recent in a series of attacks on mosques in the kingdom.
Most of the recent attacks have targeted mosques used by the Shiite minority in Saudi Arabia. The Islamic State (IS) -- which considers Shiites heretics -- has claimed responsibility for the attacks.
The state-run Saudi Press Agency said the attack today was at a mosque belonging to a local security force in the region of Asir, in the southwest.
