Two people have been killed by a "disgruntled employee" who opened fire at a private school in Saudi Arabia. The US mission said there were no children present during the attack on the Kingdom School in Riyadh. The victims were a Saudi national and a Palestinian national, he said, while a third person was injured in the rampage. The security situation at the school has been contained.
Government-linked Saudi newspaper Okaz reported that the shooter was an Iraqi teacher who had been fired from the school. Local reports that the victims were the school's principal and a teacher had been killed could not immediately be confirmed.
Talal al-Maiman, the chairman of Kingdom Schools, described the shooting as “a case of a disgruntled employee". “It is with regret that the administration building of Kingdom Schools witnessed this morning a shooting incident by an Arab national who was dismissed from the school four years ago on the basis of anger issues and an unstable personality,” he told Reuters.
