Saudi Arabia: German Envoys Are Attacked (Reuters, 13/01/2014)

Two German diplomats survived an ambush while on a drive to eastern Saudi Arabia on Monday, the state news agency SPA reported, but their vehicle was burned. SPA quoted a police spokesman as saying that Saudi authorities were investigating the rare episode, which took place in the town of Awamiya. No other details were immediately available. In Berlin, a Foreign Ministry spokeswoman confirmed that the diplomats had been attacked but were not hurt. The area where the attack occurred has experienced unrest since 2011 as Shiite Muslims accuse the Sunni-led government of persistent discrimination, an allegation the government denies.
