    Man shoots 5 dead in Saudi Arabia education office


    Ambulances gathered outside the building where shooting reportedly took place

    An attacker has opened fire at an education department office in Saudi Arabia's southern Jazan province, killing six employees, officials have said.

    Two other people have been wounded in the assault, in the remote community of Ad Dair, next to the border with Yemen.

    The attacker has been arrested, an official said.

    No motive has been given for the attack, and authorities say they are treating it as a criminal act.

    The suspect has not been identified but the AFP news agency, quoting Al-Ekhbariya state TV, reported that the man was not an employee but had some business at the ministry.

    Earlier reports suggested the attacker was a teacher.

    Criminal mass shootings are rare in Saudi Arabia but the country has faced recent attacks by the so-called Islamic State.

    Saudi Arabia has led an air campaign against Shia Houthi rebels in Yemen and violence in the border region has been frequent in recent months.

    Would be a strange target for IS.

    Could just be a simple Going Postal incident. Got fired maybe?

    Initial reports said the attacker was a teacher who had opened fire on colleagues.
