There's been an explosion in Medina in Saudi Arabia, the third suicide bombing reported in the kingdom in a single day. Four security officers were killed in Medina when a suicide bomber detonated a device near the Prophet's Mosque. Alan Johnston reports. Reports from the holy city of Medina say the bomber struck just as the sun had set. Muslims around the world would be aghast that such a thing has happened in such a sacred place. Almost simultaneously a suicide bomber detonated a device on the other side of the country in the eastern city of Qatif. The target was a mosque used by Shia Muslims. And much earlier another suicide bomber struck near a US consulate in Jeddah. Suspicion will inevitably fall on the Islamic State group. It regards the Saudi leadership as illegitimate and it has struck in the kingdom in the past.
The United Nations says 62,000 Syrians trapped in four towns are at risk of starving to death. The UN resident coordinator in Damascus, Yacoub El Hillo, called for urgent medical evacuations as well as immediate and unconditional access for humanitarian aid. Meanwhile, the International Committee of the Red Cross has released drone footage showing the destruction in the Iraqi city Ramadi, which was taken back from the Islamic State group in December. The ICRC’s president, Peter Maurer, called it a humanitarian catastrophe. The suffering has reached unprecedented levels—hundreds of thousands killed, millions on the move, families torn apart. Even as Ramadan comes to an end, many, many ordinary people are living in abject fear and terrifying uncertainty. A humanitarian catastrophe is unfolding. And make no mistake—the situation is getting worse for everyone.
A politician from the governing party in Bangladesh has spoken of his sorrow and shame after learning that his son was among the Islamist militants who attacked a cafe in the capital Dhaka on Friday. Imtiaz Khan told the BBC Bengali Service his son Rohan left home six months ago and hadn't been in touch since. I tried so hard. I did so much. He’s my only son and whatever I could do as a father to find him I did. I went to see the home office minister not once but four times. He tried to help as much as he could, but he couldn’t find him. The Islamic State group posted Rohan’s picture on Facebook on Friday and said it carried out the attack in which 20, mostly foreign hostages and two policemen, were killed.
