The Saudi government has broadcast grisly pictures of the slain al-Qaida terrorists it says are responsible for beheading American contractor Paul Johnson.
Saudi Arabian security forces say they killed Abdul Aziz al-Muqrin and three of his accomplices in a firefight Friday night in the Saudi capital, Riyadh, after witnesses spotted the American's mutilated body being dumped from a car. Mr. al-Muqrin is the suspected leader of an al-Qaida terrorist cell that claimed responsibility for murdering Mr. Johnson.
Mr. Johnson was the third American to be killed in Saudi Arabia in two weeks, and Islamist websites have warned of more attacks. The U.S. State Department has urged Americans to leave Saudi Arabia.
