Riyadh: The police in Saudi Arabia on Saturday arrested 33 people with reported links to a terror attack that killed five people earlier this week, a media report said.

A shooting occurred on November 04 in Dalwah town of Al-Ahsa governorate, one of the main centres of the minority Shia Muslims in Sunni-ruled Saudi Arabia, where the Shias were gathered at a ceremony to mark their Ashura, the holy day commemorating the death of Imam Hussein, a grandson of Prophet Mohammad and revered by the Shias.

The shooting resulted in the deaths of five people while nine were wounded. It was aimed at creating chaos in different areas of Saudi Arabia, police said.
