At least 17 people have been killed and many others wounded after a bomb attack targeted a mosque in Saudi Arabia’s southwestern region of Asir, Saudi media reports say.

The bombing took place in the mosque used by Saudi special forces in Asir’s provincial capital city of Abha on Thursday, state TV channel al-Ekhbariya reported.

The broadcaster described the incident as a “terrorist” attack, adding that the explosion occurred when worshipers were praying at the mosque.
