RIYADH, July 15 (Xinhua) -- Saudi police have killed three terrorists in cross fire in Qatif region in the Eastern Province, sources confirmed to Sabq online news on Saturday.

The three were involved in a number of terrorist crimes against citizens and security personnel, it said.

Meanwhile, Al Arabiya local news highlighted that one of the three was a Bahraini terrorist, while his brother was arrested.

The Bahraini was a fugitive in a terrorist list of nine individuals. Now the list has only six fugitives to be arrested, and the government announced 266,553 U.S. dollars as a reward for providing information about any of the wanted.

The police announced on Friday that a Saudi soldier was shot dead by unknown gunmen in Qatif.

Saudi Arabia executed four local extremists convicted in numerous terror attacks in Qatif last week. The ministry confirmed that they were involved in several terror attacks since 2011, including shooting, using weapons and explosive devices that targeted the Tarut police station and several security patrol units in the restive Eastern province area.
